On Native America Calling
Book of the Month - Six Nations musician Robbie Robertson (Mohawk) has shared his rhythms and lyrics with the world for decades. Today his son Sebastian Robertson is helping Robbie give more insight into his own story. Sebastian's book, Rock & Roll Highway: The Robbie Robertson Story, is aimed at young readers but those young at heart have a lot to embrace too. Colorful illustrations chronicle Robbie's journey from a young person to the heights of his musical career. Readers can connect with the people and places that Robbie liked to along the way, including Buddy Holly and Bob Dylan. We invite you to hear more about this Native musician’s life in our November Book of the Month conversation with Mohawk author and musician Sebastian Robertson.
