In this long-awaited biography, author Harvey Sawler traces the life of Ron Hynes, one of the most respected singer-songwriters in Canadian history. Through personal conversations and interviews, Sawler captures the spirit of an artist whose stock-in-trade has always been authenticity over mere commercial acceptability, providing rare insight into the life of the man who penned some of the country’s best-loved music. Sawler guides us through the dark times of addiction to the triumphs of songs such as “Sonny’s Dream” and “Atlantic Blue” while capturing the true essence of Hynes and the source of his musical genius.

.Harvey Sawler is the author of twelves books, including: Frank McKenna: Beyond Politics, Twenty-First Century Irvings, Last Canadian Beer: The Moosehead Story and Unforgettable Atlantic Canada. For five years he was a regular contributor to both SALTSCAPES and Progress magazines, covering a wide range of subjects involving business, entrepreneurship, culture, tourism and interesting personalities.

"…it's clear Hynes died feeling excited about the book. He'd be happy with the final product: it's sincere not saccharine, fascinating not celebratory, and will reveal much to even his biggest fans and closest friends." - The Overcast
