Publisher Comments:

“These stories, polemics, and rants grew out of years of asking questions, listening closely, and trying out what I heard on the world around me. I guess that part of growing up is finally deciding what you authentically inherit, what was it that was passed along to you by our elders. Then its your turn to keep it in the world by passing it along.” —Utah Phillips
Captured live on May 7, 1999 as part of a Free Speech Teach-In, the inestimable “Golden Voice of the Great Southwest,” delivers 74 minutes of his trademark history, humor, song, and struggle in a signature performance. Utahs songs and stories remind us to “Don't Mourn, Organize,” and that we can be inspired, educated, and entertained while we do it.

“A bard who gives us joy and hope.” —Studs Terkel
“A great performer, a commanding voice, a wit, a musician, an anarchist, lover, and hobo—a beautiful man.” —Edward Abbey
