    "Fascinating!"
    What made the experience of listening to Pete Seeger vs. the Un-Americans the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed this deeper look into these proceedings by a longtime friend of Pete Seeger . An interesting and well documented account of how a word, and the fear of it, has been used to destroy artists and thinkers lives for generations. The world was not black and white to Pete. He paid for his convictions but never stopped questioning what would be a better way to improve society and communities.


    What other book might you compare Pete Seeger vs. the Un-Americans to and why?

    Not sure. I don't remember many other books quite like this one.


    Which character – as performed by Travis – was your favorite?

    Pete Seeger, of course. I felt that Travis had a voice with a mid western sort of flavor that lent well to this material. He was easy to listen to and clean in his narration of this story that has so many events and characters. He was easy to follow..


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Wish I had. I may again.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a Pete Seeger fan or at all interested in getting a better perspective on this important part of the development of our American policies then I would recommend this listen!

    "The truth behind Pete Seeger"

    I always wondered way Pete had the label of communist. This book tells the facts about his cause. Pete believed that we should look out for one another and this book tells that story.
