This review is from: The Protest Singer: An Intimate Portrait of Pete Seeger (Hardcover)
Fans of Pete Seeger who have studied his career will enjoy this book. Mr. Wilkinson has done a fine job, and it shows that at ninety Pete has no thoughts of really slowing down. The fire in his heart still burns as bright as it did back in his younger days. His name is still "magic" when mentioned around banjo players. Even the late Louise Scruggs paid homage to Pete Seeger in Earl Scrugg's banjo book as being one of the best people to advance the five string banjo in the world. This book is a nice intimate portrait of America's folksinging Johnny Appleseed. A very enjoyable read.
