Description

One of the most popular musicians of the 20th century, Bob Marley lives on as an icon of reggae music. This informative biography provides an excellent introduction to the celebrated singer/songwriter, guitarist, and activist. Marley grew up in the Trenchtown slum of Kingston, Jamaica. By age 14, he left school to work as a welder's apprentice; by 18, he joined a singing group that became one of Jamaica's hottest musical acts. Readers will learn how Bob Marley and the Wailers made reggae music mainstream for audiences around the world. They'll also discover how Marley became an international symbol of peace, love, and struggle against oppression before his death at age 36.
