Guthrie's music became the soundtrack to the Great Depression, and iconic of the Dust Bowl migrants. Guthrie and his music came to represent those disenfranchised people who remained committed to making better lives for themselves through the promise of the American Dream. Here, in a short, accessible biography, bolstered with primary documents, including letters, autobiographical excerpts, and reflections by Pete Seeger, Cohen introduces Guthrie's life and music influence to students of American history and culture.

Review quote "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.
Cohen artfully captures Guthrie's spirit in his prose and sheds new light on familiar themes and songs. A great read! 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.
