Publisher's Summary

Winner of a 2005 Audie Award, this innovative portrait of a musical maverick is narrated by the author.

Charles Ives, a great 20th-century composer, expressed through songs what he heard in the world. This biography of the daring genius plays like a soundtrack of his life and applauds his unique contributions that live on, despite the criticism and public scorn he endured.

Critic Reviews

"Mordicai Gerstein's marvelous biography...is brought to life with the addition of the audio soundtrack, which adds another level of understanding to his genius through examples of all the sounds that are explained in the book....Gerstein narrates in a gentle tone, as though describing a dear friend." (School Library Journal)
