Overview:

This Land Was Made for You and Me: The Life and Songs of Woody Guthrie : In his short lifetime (1912-1967), Woody Guthrie wrote over three thousand songs. Accompanying himself on the guitar, he sang about what he saw happening around him: the breadlines of the Depression, migrant workers pouring out of the Dust Bowl, unions fighting for decent working conditions, and fascism of all kinds. Hundreds of his songs came from personal experiences: melancholy songs about his difficult childhood in Oklahoma and Texas, tender songs written for the women he loved, playful children's tunes written for his kids. In Elizabeth Partridge's honest and gripping biography, This Land Was Made for You and Me: The Life and Songs of Woody Guthrie, meet and travel the country with the man who created such a rich musical legacy for America. Ages 12 and up.
