This book kicks butt. It's a nonfiction book aimed at juvenile readers. I guess. It was in that section of the library and yet I believe it's appealing to any age. Full of pictures and easy to read text the book informs about the life and times of Woody Guthrie and it doesn't hold back in sharing the dark side of the man either. I find Guthrie to be a fascinating man who left a big mark on our country. He was a tortured soul, remarkable and gifted, a bit of a bastard to his family, and a real radical who strove to make a difference in a country broken and wounded by the Great Depression. I would encourage others to explore this book or just check out more about him online.
