Elizabeth Partridge, author of acclaimed works like Restless Spirit: The Life and Work of Dorothea Lange, paints a gallant portrait of the musician who crusaded for workers' rights throughout the first half of the 20th century. In this thorough, observant, and well-told book, Woody Guthrie is brought to life in chronological chapters, which provide images of Guthrie via photographs, drawings, notes and posters, as well as plenty of quotes from the man himself. A stellar biography that captures the life's purpose of an American hero -- proving Guthrie to be a welcome role model for young and old alike -- this book reminds us of the noble principles on which our country was founded and encourages us to fight for what we believe.
