Editorial Reviews

Horace Reynolds
But there's no mistaking Woody's talent fro expression, his ability to sling the American language. his book is an eloquent piece, wild as a train whistle in the mountains, a scrumptious picture of fighting, carousing, singing, laughing migratory America.-- Books of the Century; New York Times review, March 1943

    Great story of an American icon

    I first read this back in my high school years in the early 60's when the folk craze was taking off. Dylan was singing trubutes, Seeger and PP&M were singing his music and I was hooked. I enjoyed the read then and the history of the man who not only shared his music with us but stood up for the hard working people of this country. His music lives on and with the 100th anniversary of his birth this year (2012) his story deserves the read.
