Publisher's Summary

The legendary voice of folk music, Woody Gurthrie, left behind hundreds of songs, including such American treasures as "This Land is Your Land," "Hard Traveling," and "Reuben James." His has influenced generations of musicians from Bob Dylan and Joan Baez to Bruce Springsteen and the Indigo Girls. In this remarkable autobiography, Guthrie presents a vision of America that, like his songs, is not soon forgotten. Guthrie traveled all over the U.S. by boxcar, thumb, and foot during the years after the Great Depression. He died of Huntington's Disease in 1967.

...always shockingly immediate and real....A book to make novelists and sociologists jealous. (The Nation)

    "Living without bounds"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bound for Glory to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Arlo's voice is expressive, and easily mistaken for Woody's.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Woody's ability to live among the rich, or live with nothing, and his drive to be true to himself.


    What about Arlo Guthrie’s performance did you like?

    It was very smooth, and expressive. There was no impression that he was reading you a book - he was simply telling you his story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I started out listening in my truck, but didn't drive enough to finish it in one day, so listened to the rest of it while mowing my lawn.

    "NOT disappointing"

    IF you have warm and fuzzy feelings for early 20c folk music, or remember fondly Woody Guthrie and his influence on the 60's counter culture.... then you won't be disappointed.
