Description

This is the autobiography of Woody Guthrie, the founder of modern American folk music. It is a funny, cynical, earthy and tragic account of his life in an Oklahoma oil-boom town, of the Depression, and of his subsequent travels in, on and under trains, in stolen cars and on his feet round America.
