50 Years in Music and Life

 By Peter Yarrow, Noel (Paul) Stookey, and Mary Travers
Introduction by John F. Kerry, US Secretary of State

Finally . . . here is the first and only book that visually tells us the intimate story of Peter, Paul, and Mary and their music, with stirring images that follow their passionate fifty-year journey to the center of America's heart. The very best of thousands of photographs, many rare and never before published, taken over five decades by some of the world's top photographers, show them at their earliest performances in the 1960s, when Mary was the most desired, beautiful, and charismatic performer and a new role model for women. Follow the trio as they lead America to discover the passionate soul of folk music. Join the struggle for racial equality, social justice, and freedom in this memorable journey, from the historic 1963 March on Washington with Martin Luther King, Jr., to the trio's appearance before half a million people in 1969 to end the Vietnam War, to their singing at the Hollywood Bowl for Survival Sunday in 1978, helping to launch the antinuke movement, the world's first international environmental movement.

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring: Celebrity Songbook

It’s raining, it’s pouring,
The old man is snoring.
Bumped his head, and he went to bed,
And couldn’t get up in the mornin’.


One of the most beloved children’s songs gets a rollicking picture book treatment—and a gorgeous musical interpretation by the beloved trio Peter, Paul & Mary. Featuring witty and whimsical art by the renowned illustrator Christine Davenier, this stunning new book offers plenty of fun, whether it’s raining or not.

When the rain pours down, a family full of children decides to play hide-and seek. Even as they scurry into the corners and cubbies and crevices of their house, one little girl cuddles up with Grandpa—the "old man who bumped his head"—and reads to him from her favorite book to help him feel better. Davenier’s sweet and endearing art enhances the fun and fantasy of Peter, Paul & Mary’s charming new arrangement of the tune. Here, the sweet nursery rhyme takes imaginative flight as a cow jumps over the moon, Granddad flies to the stars, and familiar characters like Jack and Jill appear. At the end, when the game is over and the rain, rain has gone away, the entire family gathers around Grandpa in a happy, loving group.

Complete with a CD featuring Peter, Paul & Mary’s marvelous version of the title song, along with Peter singing "Believe Town" and Noel Paul Stookey performing "Glory of Love," this beautiful picture book is perfect for rainy days, bedtime, or any time.

PETER, PAUL & MARY became famous for their ability to convey powerful, personal, and political messages through a repertoire of songs that resonated with millions of Americans in the 1960s. Their debut album, released in 1962, remained in the Top 10 for ten months, and the Top 20 for two years. Their first hit single, "Lemon Tree," was swiftly followed by "If I Had a Hammer," which became an anthem of the Civil Rights movement and was performed by the trio at the 1963 March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his legendary "I Have a Dream" speech. Their classic song, "Puff, the Magic Dragon," has been a favorite of children for almost fifty years, and the book version was a number one best seller.

Over a span of more than fifty years, Peter, Paul & Mary touched the lives and hearts of tens of millions of people, won five Grammy Awards, produced thirteen Top 40 hits, and received eight gold and five platinum albums.

Paris-born artist CHRISTINE DAVENIER has illustrated many children’s books, including the best-selling The Very Fairy Princess, written by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Harrison; The First Thing My Mama Told Me by Susan Marie Swanson, for which she won a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children’s Book of the Year Award and a Charlotte Zolotow Award honor book. The many notable authors whose works she illustrated include Norma Fox Mazer, Madeleine L’Engle, Jack Prelutsky, and Judith Viorst. The Bulletin of the Center of Children’s Books praised her work, noting that: "Sometimes illustrators take us to new worlds; sometimes they make us see our own familiar world anew. Christine Davenier gives daily life a freshness and genuine élan that you only hope the world outside her books can match."

Dec. 2009 

We are proud to announce that we're preparing a celebration of Peter, Paul and Mary's 50th Anniversary. 

Part of this celebration will include a photographic tribute. 

We're reaching out to the website and beyond as we look for intriguing, iconic photos, or photos that reveal an intimate sense of the spirit or idiosyncratic personalities of the members of the trio, together or singly, that might paint an intimate, as well as the more “public image” portrait. 

We are especially interested in shots taken prior to 1995, and very eager to find shots from political or human rights benefits, marches, rallies or concerts for grass roots leaders, electoral candidates, or movement efforts we were supporting (Ex. El Salvadorian Sanctuary Movement in the U.S., United Farm Workers, Peace Movement, Women’s Movement, PPM arrested at South African Embassy and Anti-Apartheid Movement, Earth Day etc. 

If you think you have something special, please send it preferably by email--it might be included! . Email us your photo if possible. (Please send hi- or medium-resolution photos and if we need higher-res for some reason, we’ll make that request , with our thanks.) Hard copy prints  will NOT be returned, so please do not send us the original of your photo. You may send  a duplicate print of the photo,  a scanned picture (unnecessary to be top scanning quality), or use your digital camera to take a picture of the picture or even make a copy on a copy machine. Email it or mail it as you wish. If we choose your photo we will make arrangements to borrow the original.
