ABOUT THE BOOK:
Radical songwriter and organizer Joe Hill was murdered by the state of Utah in 1915, but his songs continue to inspire working-class activists and musicians. This collection of letters, edited by radical historian Philip Foner (1910–1994), with new material by Alexis Buss, provides a window into the political reflections and personal struggles behind Hill’s legacy.
