Pete Seeger's-- Where Have All the Flower's Gone: A Musical Autobiography @1993,1997 Pete gives a concise history of both Marti's words and Julian Orbon's setting it to a well-known melody.Pete's own introduction to the song and subsequent popularity are reviewed as well. This ia a great book to begin background information on many many of Pete's songs. It's available from Sing Out Corporation 610-865-5366 or try at Amazon or Barnes and Nobles Link. I think mine came from Barnes and Noble.
