This latest unauthorized biography on Canadian Neil Young is the first complete illustrated history to appear on its subject. Voyageur Press, long known for creating and delivering high-quality graphic books, has assembled a beautiful digest here with a litany of some terrific never-before-published photos, all presented on high-quality glossy pages. There are 150 color photos and 100 black-and-white shots.

The book is intended to coincide with the former Buffalo Springfield/Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young member's summer 2010 tour. Long May You Run covers five decades of the guitar player's music and includes some new interviews with Neil and various bandmates including Stephen Stills, David Crosby, members of Crazy Horse and even Pearl Jam. The chapters cover Neil's long career from his groundbreaking - and the best work he ever did - music with Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, and his long caravan of solo projects.

The writers follow Young from his earliest days in Canada, when he fell prey to an outbreak of polio at nine years old. The family moved to Florida to accelerate Neil's recuperation and then moved back to Toronto. The family ultimately broke apart, and the young Young found solace in a transistor radio and the rock 'n' roll it was playing.

There are chapters that include discographies - albums, singles, as guest artist and tribute albums - the sidemen with whom he has played, and more. The writers had done due diligence here in presenting one of rock's more intriguing characters.
