Gordon Lightfoot's name is synonymous with timeless songs about trains and shipwrecks, rivers and highways, lovers and loneliness. His music defined the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and '70s, topped charts and sold millions. While Lightfoot's songs are well known, the man behind them is elusive. He's never allowed his life to be chronicled in a book--until now. Biographer Nick Jennings has had unprecedented access to the notoriously reticent musician. 'Lightfoot' takes us deep inside the artist's world, from his idyllic childhood in Orillia, the wild sixties, and his canoe trips into Canada's North to his heady times atop the music world.
