This Land is Your Land: Woody Guthrie and the Journey of an American Folk Song
100 years after the birth of folk singer Woody Guthrie, "This Land is Your Land" tells the story of his most famous work. "This Land Is Your Land" is the most iconic folk song in American history, and the masterwork of one of the country's greatest singer/song-writers, Woody Guthrie. Written in 1940 and first recorded in 1944, the song became an instant hit, and then a point of controversy, and finally a cross-generational anthem. It has been covered by numerous artists in many genres. Published to coincide with Guthrie's centenary year, "This Land Is Your Land" is a remarkably detailed account of the journey of America's most celebrated folk song. It also details Guthrie's legendary journey from Oklahoma across the Heartland to New York City, where he wrote many of his works including "This Land Is Your Land". With more than forty rare black-and-white photographs from the Woody Guthrie archives, a removable poster, plus original interviews with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Pete Seeger, John Mellencamp, and more, "This Land is Your Land" delivers a revealing portrait of an American treasure.
