His has influenced generations of musicians from Bob Dylan and Joan Baez to Bruce Springsteen and the Indigo Girls. In this remarkable autobiography, Guthrie presents a vision of America that, like his songs, is not soon forgotten. Guthrie traveled all over the U.S. by boxcar, thumb, and foot during the years after the Great Depression. He died of Huntington's Disease in 1967.More

Living without bounds
Yes, Arlo's voice is expressive, and easily mistaken for Woody's.
Woody's ability to live among the rich, or live with nothing, and his drive to be true to himself.
It was very smooth, and expressive. There was no impression that he was reading you a book - he was simply telling you his story.
Yes, I started out listening in my truck, but didn't drive enough to finish it in one day, so listened to the rest of it while mowing my lawn.
