Ramblin' Man : The Life and Times of Woody Guthrie, Paperback / softback Book

Ramblin' Man : The Life and Times of Woody Guthrie Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A patriot and a political radical, Woody Guthrie captured the spirit of his times in his enduring songs.

He was marked by the FBI as a subversive. He lived in fear of the fatal fires that stalked his family and of the mental illness that snared his mother.

At forty-two, he was cruelly silenced by Huntington's disease.

Ed Cray, the first biographer to be granted access to the Woody Guthrie Archive, has created a haunting portrait of an American who profoundly influenced Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and American popular music itself.
