"The life and accomplishments of Pete Seeger are laid out in classic Who Was ...? style in this appealing biography. From his childhood, to his death, Seeger's activism and musical style are explained in the context of the events of the time. I liked that attention was paid to the McCarthy era and the blacklisting of artists and musicians: "This was not how democracy was supposed to work." Clear, engaging writing and line drawings that complement the text make this a winning title to read for school or pleasure. Back matter includes timelines and a bibliography.

"This biography of folk singer Pete Seeger reveals a complex and controversial individual who used music to rally people to causes in which he believed, such as civil rights, unions, better government, and fighting pollution. Born in 1919, Seeger was introduced to folk music by his musician parents. He earned money through a hodgepodge of music-related jobs including transcribing folk songs for the Library of Congress and performing individually and as part of two groups: the Almanac Singers and the Weavers. Seeger’s uncompromising commitment to stand by his conscience despite the consequences is communicated in an age appropriate way and with explanations of the terms Communism, unions, and blacklisting. As with others in the series, despite its brevity (about one hundred pages) and black and white sketched illustrations, this book does a nice job communicating the subject’s life and legacy.
