  • Short Description
Fans of this rock-and-roll icon will love this well-researched account that documents his first 20 years in Ontario and Manitoba, Canada, before moving to California in 1966.

“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

Includes many previously unseen photos and set lists

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.

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.

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

“A terrific study of Neil’s early life.” — Broken Arrow

“This is a book written by a true fan for true fans.” — Publishers Weekly

“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

“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
