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
