Inspired by the rhythms of American folk music, this moving account of Pete Seeger's life celebrates his legacy, showing kids of every generation that no cause is too small and no obstacle too large if, together, you stand up and sing!

Pete Seeger was born with music in his bones. Coming of age during the Great Depression, Pete saw poverty and adversity that would forever shape his worldview, but it wasn't until he received his first banjo that he foundhisway to change the world. It was plucking banjo strings and singing folk songs that showed Pete how music had the incredible power to bring people together.

Using this gift throughout his life, Pete encouraged others to rally behind causes that mattered--fighting for Civil Rights, ending the Vietnam War, or cleaning up the Hudson River. For Pete, no challenge was too great, and what started out as a love for music turned into a lifetime of activism and change. His greatest talent--and greatest passion--would become an unforgettable part of American history.

Award-winning creators Susanna Reich and Adam Gustavson celebrate folk singer Pete Seeger--his life, his music, and his incredible activism.

Gustavson???s mixed-media illustrations highlight Seeger???s modest upbringing and down-to-earth persona, pairing lushly illustrated scenes of him traveling and performing with rough, loose sketches . . . An intimate look at a pivotal American figure. -Publisher's Weekly

The 'We Shall Overcome' songwriter???s legacy spans decades, and this will surely help a new generation understand his fervor and still-relevant message. -Booklist

Gustavson???s realistic art supports the admiring tone. . . . A solid introduction. -School Library Journal

Gustavson's naturalistic oil illustrations capture individual band-members' personalities and fans' excitement, complementing the well-orchestrated text. -The Horn Book on FOUR FAB FRIENDS
