John Stansfield

John Denver was one of the most popular performing artists of the 1970's. He released more than three hundred songs, composing about half of them himself. Denver hosted a television series and performed in movies.

He was named 'Poet Laureate of Colorado' in 1977 and his song Rocky Mountain High was named as a state song for Colorado in March 2007.

John Denver used his musical talents to make the world a better place. He expressed his belief in the
power of music this way—

“Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics, or the expression of our love and faith, music proves we are the same.”


John Stansfield is author of the Now You Know Bio of Enos Mills: Rocky Mountain Naturalist.

"A wonderful introduction to the life of John Denver for the young reader. The content is excellent and is written in a friendly tone. I love the Know More sections, which further explain some of the concepts covered in the text. The Story Behind the Song boxes give an insight into what inspired some of the songs that John wrote.
Every school library should own a copy of this book to encourage children to read about the life work of John Denver."
