Book Details


A monumental work, expansive in scope, covering the life, times and culture of that most famous of the Wobblies - songwriter, poet, hobo, thinker, humourist, martyr - Joe Hill. It is a journey into the Wobbly culture that made Hill and the capitalist culture that killed him. Many aspects of the life and lore of Joe Hill receive their first and only discussion in IWW historian Franklin Rosemont's opus. Collected too is Joe Hill's art, plus scores of other images featuring Hill-inspired art by IWW illustrators from Ralph Chaplin to Carlos Cortez.
