Ramblin' Man: The Life and Times of Woody Guthrie

by Ed Cray
£12.99   paperback  Norton (2006)

Ramblin 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. With an introduction by Studs Terkel.
