Preface by McLean, with a foreword by Pete Seeger, founder of Hudson River Sloop Clearwater Inc. In 1970, Seeger and McLean sailed the Clearwater to Washington DC and held a press conference and impromptu concert for the House of Representatives to raise awareness for polluted waterways. This is the simultaneous softcover issue. Drawings by Tom Allen. Signed by McLean on the front cover. Some chipping to the spine; very good in wrappers. [#035996] SOLD
