Editorial Reviews

Review

"Clearly written, packed with piquant quotations, and unafraid of detailing the complexities and contradictions of this rambling life, this fine biography is not only the best short introduction to the life and music of Woody Guthrie; it is the most succinct and direct examination of Guthrie's contribution to the dream-lyric of America." - Barry Shank, Professor of Comparative Studies at Ohio State University

"Ron Cohen has a knowledge and love of American folk music that can be felt on nearly every page of this wonderfully concise biography of Woody Guthrie. Cohen artfully captures Guthrie's spirit in his prose and sheds new light on familiar themes and songs. A great read!" - Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the Grammy Museum

"Upon the celebration of the centennial of Woody Guthrie's birth there will be a new visitation to the bard's life and works. In spite of his global fame little is actually known by the average person about the man and his career and life. Woody Guthrie fills in the blanks. I suggest you put on some music and learn with Cohen's new book while you have your own Woody Guthrie birthday party." - Country Joe McDonald, Singer/Songwriter
