The ebook is free, exclusively on the David Rovics mobile app (which is also free, on Apple and Google’s app stores). Or you can download it by donating below.
If I get enough donations from folks wanting to download the ebook, I will use the money to pay for studio time so that I can make a professional-quality audiobook version of it.
Raised so far: $75
Make a donation of $1 or more, and you will be taken to the download page, where you can choose from a variety of ebook formats. The audiobook version will be coming soon. (Once it’s out, it will be on the same download page with the other formats.)

For those with the means who want to support future such endeavors of mine, please become a member of my CSA.
I hope you enjoy A Busker’s Adventures.
