Reviews

"I and so many of my musician friends are indebted to Woody for his lifelong commitment to social change and to the common man. These letters that Mary Jo has saved provide a new and open window to Woody’s early years and to the love he had for his family. It’s a rare and fascinating collection!"
—Graham Nash, Artist

"Many of the documents included will appeal to fans and researchers. The letters Guthrie wrote to his family after the death of his child and letters about his success in the music business bring insight into Guthrie's personality and relationships... recommended for readers interested in the iconic musician."
—Library Journal
