Overview

First published in 1943, this autobiography is also a superb portrait of America’s Depression years, by the folk singer, activist, and man who saw it all.

One of Guthrie’s first published writings, it is an important artifact of musical and political history, and a precedent for Guthrie’s long lost novel, House of Earth, to be published in 2013 and edited by Johnny Depp and Douglas Brinkley.
