NPR stories about Nora Guthrie
A poet of the people, the balladeer wrote some of the United States' most important songs, including "This Land Is Your Land." He captured the heart of hard economic times and war while struggling with poverty and personal demons. He would have been 100 this year.
"Wait! Don't assume you're not interested!" writes Ketzel Levine when including this book in her roundup of holiday gift possibilities. The book "cuts and pastes Guthrie's remarkable cartoons, drawings and journal fragments into a raucous kind of sketchbook."
