    " I first read this book when I was in my last year of high school, many years ago. Woody Guthrie was my hero then, and he still is. This book is a great road book, but that is perhaps 1/100th of why the man is my hero. Woody spoke for the people, the real people, - disenfranchised, broken up, busted down - the man/woman who has no idea where his next meal is coming from, let alone where in the hell he's going to sleep that night. "

    " Best fictionalized autobiography ever. Well maybe not fictionalized per se. There are omissions. "

    " I've read this book twice. It's got some slow goin' moments, but other than that, it's a lyrical ride through the poignant moments Guthrie thought represented his life and perspective. If you like the road journey novel, this book captures a time when the train was the way to roll, the depression and the dust bowl were keeping people down, and the US of A was riddled with different growing pains... but it captures it all in a way that speaks to life as we know it - addressing the systems of this country as wacko, and the original dream of the United States as living in the land and with its people. "

    " I wanted to like this more than I did. It took me a while to get through it because it was pretty boring. I kept putting it down for weeks at a time hoping it would be more exciting the next time I picked it up. I'd definitely rather listen to his records. "
