Overview

As much a road novel as it is an autobiography, this translation of Bound for Glory recounts Woody Guthrie’s life in an Oklahoma oil-boom town, the Depression that followed, and his subsequent journey around the United States by foot, on train, and by hitching rides. The anecdotes he tells are alternately funny, cynical, and tragic, and describe his encounters with, and travels in, the company of beggars, vagabonds, and migrant workers—encounters that would inform his songwriting and ultimately influence musicians such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and Tom Paxton.

 

Tanto una novela de la carretera como una autobiografía, Rumbo a la gloria narra la vida de Woody Guthrie en un pueblo petrolero de Oklahoma, la Depresión que siguió y su viaje subsiguiente a través de los Estados Unidos a pie, en tren y a dedo. Las anécdotas que cuenta alternan entre humorísticas, cínicas y trágicas, y describen sus encuentros con pordioseros, vagabundos y emigrantes—encuentros que influirían su música y que terminarían influyendo artistas como Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs y Tom Paxton.
