Description by OLDIES.com:

"I learned courage from Buddha, Jesus, Lincoln, and Mr. Cary Grant."

So said Miss Peggy Lee. With her platinum cool and inimitable whisper, she sold twenty million records and presided over music's greatest generation alongside pals Frank Sinagra and Bing Crosby. Albert Einstein adored her; Duke Ellington dubbed her "the Queen."

Drawing on exclusive interviews and never-before-available information, the author delivers a complex, compelling portrait that begins in Depression-era North Dakota with a girl named Norma who is plagued by loss, her father's alcoholism, and her stepmother's abuse. One day she boards a train, following her muse and hoping her music will lead her someplace better. It does.

Drawing on exclusive interviews and never-before-seen information, Peter Richmond delivers a complex, compelling portrait of an artist that begins with a girl plagued by loss, her father's alcoholism, and her stepmother's abuse. One day she boards a train, following her muse and hoping her music will lead her someplace better. And it does: to the pantheon of great American singers.
