Book Overview

First published in 1943, this autobiography is also a superb portrait of America's Depression years, by the folk singer, activist, and man who saw it all.

Woody Guthrie was born in Oklahoma and traveled this whole country over--not by jet or motorcycle, but by boxcar, thumb, and foot. During the journey of discovery that was his life, he composed and sang words and music that have become a national heritage. His songs, however, are but part of his legacy. Behind him Woody Guthrie left a remarkable autobiography that vividly brings to life both his vibrant personality and a vision of America we cannot afford to let die.

Even readers who never heard Woody or his songs will understand the current esteem in which he's held after reading just a few pages. Always shockingly immediate and real, as if Woody were telling it out loud. A book to make novelists and sociologists jealous.
--The Nation
