Pete Seeger's life, music, and legacy encapsulate nearly a century of American history and culture. He has immersed himself in folk music and used it, like Johnny Appleseed, to "plant the seeds of a better tomorrow in the homes across our land." The songs in this collection of 139 American Favorite Ballads narrate tales of ordinary people and their extraordinary deeds, and show Pete at the crossroads of the past and the future putting his own stamp on America's folk song heritage while bequeathing it to generations to come.

The physical box-set version includes 139 tracks and 5 CDs, each with its own booklet of extensive notes, for nearly 6 hours of music.

The digital download version includes the 139 songs on the CD version plus two additional previously unreleased songs: "My Gallant Black Bess," an ode to a horse, and "The Ballad of Dr. DearJohn," a critique of the health care system as relevant today as it was in the 1960's. Both songs are also available for purchase individually.
