Product description


”A supremely compelling chronicle of Young’s first 20 years.” ― Rolling Stone

"This is a book written by a true fan for true fans." ― Publishers Weekly

"Many interesting old photos and nostalgic moments from the '50s and '60s will likely entertain Neil Young fans and perhaps even give a better understanding of the man who in some ways never really left the Sugar Mountain years behind." ― Winnipeg Free Press

"A fascinating portrait of a life taking shape." ― Uncut Magazine

“Eye-witness interviews, accompanied by some superb archive images, help make this a book that’s as much essential social history as it is musical biography. For those who pore over Young’s career, this is an essential purchase.” ― Record Collector Magazine

"A terrific study of Neil's early life." ― Broken Arrow

"Sharry Wilson's impeccably researched and written, beautifully illustrated Young Neil is the definitive chronicle of a Canadian icon's early years in his home and native land. Essential reading for diehard Neil Young fans, this book offers a lovingly detailed portrait of Canadian life in the middle of the 20th century, and of a sensitive young man who put his music above all else." ―Kevin Chong, author of Neil Young Nation and Northern Dancer

"A compelling look at the first 20 years of Neil Young's life as he sets out on his journey to find a heart of gold. Sharry Wilson not only takes us on Neil's voyage but also uncovers life in the 40's, 50's, and 60's in Ontario and Manitoba. A wonderful study of one the world's great artists written with passion and an obvious love for her subject." ―Bernie Finkelstein, founder of True North Records and author of True North: A Life In The Music Business

"The narrative is written in an unadorned style that makes for a leisurely read and reflects the uncomplicated authenticity of Young’s legacy. With a multitude of historic sources at her disposal, the author has borne essential reading for heavy duty fans who want―nay, need―to know why it’s so important to keep on rocking in the free world." ― Alibi

About the Author

Sharry Wilson was born in Toronto and still resides just north of the city with her husband. A lifelong Neil Young fan, Sharry has contributed numerous articles to Broken Arrow, the quarterly magazine of the Neil Young Appreciation Society. Young Neil is an expansion of her two-part article, “A Shakey Education.” Young Neil is Sharry’s first book.
