The Golden Thread: A Song for Pete Seeger

by Colin Meloy Author and Nikke McClure Illustrator

Written by Colin Meloy, the lead singer of the acclaimed Portland band The Decemberists, this kids' biography and tribute to the life of Pete Seeger is a must read for any fan of folk music. More than just a folk musician though, Pete Seeger was a civil rights, labor, and environmental activist. The book takes its name from Seeger's famous lyric, that if he had a golden thread he would use it to weave all the people of the world to one another. For Seeger, that thread was music, and throughout his lifetime he used it to great effect to make the world a better place. A beautifully written and illustrated (by Nikki McClure) volume for any lover of history and music.
