Summary
"In this new book, we hear directly from the artist through the widest array of sources--letters, notes to himself, published articles, rough drafts, stories, and poetry--creating the most detailed picture available of Seeger as a musician, an activist, and a family man, in his own words and from his own perspective... The portrait that emerges is not a saint, not a martyr, but a flesh-and-blood man, struggling to understand his gift, his time, and his place."--from book jacket
