BOOK: Young Neil: The Sugar Mountain Years by Sharry Wilson Due This Fall
by Sharry Wilson
A forthcoming book titled Young Neil: The Sugar Mountain Years by Sharry Wilson is due this Fall on October 14, 2014.
Young Neil: The Sugar Mountain Years is a detailed chronological narrative of the early life of iconic Canadian musician Neil Young. Exploring a time in this Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s life that has yet to be documented with such depth of research, Young Neil is an exhaustive document of his “Sugar Mountain” years, from 1945 to 1966. From his birth in Toronto through his school years in Florida, Ontario, and Manitoba, the book examines the development of Young’s unique talent against a backdrop of shifting postwar values, a turbulent family history, and a musical revolution in the making. Includes many previously unseen photos, memorabilia, and set lists.
Sharry Wilson is a longtime Neil Young rustie fan and has been researching Neil's early years for several years now as chronicled in Broken Arrow Magazine: February 2010. It's been a fascinating journey for Sharry and we're looking forward to Young Neil's release and reviewing here on TW. And hopefully an interview with some behind the scenes look at the research and writing project.
