it was amazing

I had no idea what to expect with this book. I wasn't really looking forward to reading it. Boy was I wrong. I loved it. It is not the usual boring biography, he is simply telling stories, in his own unique way. His stories made me think, what would I have done in the same situation. Could I have rode in the box car, waited to pick the apricots, saw my sister burned to death and kept going. Could I take a beating on the dead main street and still manage to keep going? Could I have suffered so much and still been able to see the country in all its beauty or would I become hard and mean. My knowledge of Woody was VERY limited to some songs and of course his son Arlo in "Alice's Restaurant". It shed a whole new light upon the man and I am happy for gaining a new perspective. I really enjoyed reading this and would recommend it anyone simply looking to expand their world by shedding a little light into a life so very different from your own.
