"Joe Hill has finally found a chronicler worthy of his revolutionary spirit, sense of humor, and poetic imagination."
–Robin D.G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams
"Rosemont's treatment of Joe Hill is passionate, polemical, and downright entertaining. What he gives us is an extended and detailed argument for considering both Hill and the IWW for their contributions toward creating an autonomous and uncompromising alternative culture."
–Gordon Simmons, Labor Studies Journal
"Magnificent, practical, irreverent and (as one might say) magisterial, written in a direct, passionate, sometimes funny, deeply searching style."
–Peter Linebaugh, author of Stop, Thief!
"Rosemont seems to have hunted down every available detail of Hill's short life and abiding legend."
–Los Angeles Times
"It has been a long time since so much new material on Joe Hill and the Wobblies has been collected in one volume. All students of the IWW, labor cartoons and songs, radical humor, and the history of blue-collar countercultures in the U.S. will find this book indispensable."
–Salvatore Salerno, editor of The Big Red Songbook
