He tells of his childhood running wild in an Oklahoma oil-boom town, the tragedies that struck his family and of life on the open road during the Great Depression - hell-raising and brawling in boxcars, all while singing to raise a dime for his next meal. But above all, this is a song for the America that Woody saw from his lonesome highway, as he travelled from one end of the country to the other with guitar in hand and the songs that made him a legend drifting out over the Dust Bowl. Adapted into an Oscar-winning film starring David Carradine, Bound for Glory is the moving true story of America's greatest folksinger.Woody Guthrie (1912-67), the son of a cowboy, was born in rural Oklahoma.

Review :

The original road novel--even though it takes the form of autobiography. If Guthrie didn't actually invent the footloose, no- strings-attached American hero (remember this guy Twain who wrote something about lighting out for the territory?), he certainly solidified the 20th-century version. Guitar slung over the shoulder as he sprinted to boost himself aboard freight trains, a man of the people equally at home with urban intellectuals, Guthrie incarnated for generations of Americans the artist as free spirit. This is the book that created the legend.

About the Author :

Woody Guthrie, the son of a cowboy, was born in 1912 in rural Oklahoma. When the Depression arrived, Woody hit the road and travlled round America. He became a folksinger, guitarist, merchant seaman, actor, artist and broadcaster. Woody Guthrie died in 1967 in Queen's, New York.
