The songwriter’s son, Duncan Phillips, contributed a forward to this edition of the songbook. "Over the years and decades that followed (after his father moved away from Utah following an unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate in 1968), that songbook became my only tangible connection to my father. .. I would thumb through it from time to time, stop at a song and do what children do best: daydream of where he might be and what great adventures he must surely be on."
