Joe Hill: The Man Who Never Died

(1 customer review)


“Finally. A real Joe Hill biography. Asks all the right questions, digs deep for the answers and reads like a true crime drama a la David Simon.”  –Steve Earle, singer-songwriter

“Adler meticulously examines the legal proceedings and makes a powerful case that Hill was railroaded by prosecutors intent on destroying him fro his association with the hated Wobblies. Adler even finds new evidence that strongly supports Hill’s alibi. Though HIll died young, Adler shows that his sardonic, resilient voice of political protest lived, leaving a powerful influence on folk singers such as Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and Boby Dylan.” — Boston Globe



The definitive biography of Joe Hill.

    I just joined the Wobblies and I received a package of my membership card, a pin, and a few reading materials. I wish workers would see the IWW is the only labor union organization that promotes workers rights and doesn’t collaborate with the employers like the AFL-CIO does.
