Woody Guthrie & the American Dream by Jadi Campbell

Woody Guthrie embodies American Folk Music like no other musician of the 20th Century. On the occasion of his 111th birthday, we follow him on his travels around the country during the Great Depression Era; riding the rails around the country, performing in work camps, saloons and union halls and offering the multitude of downtrodden unemployed and oppressed hope and entertainment.
Today most people know Woody as the artist who wrote „This Land Is Your Land“ but for those who look to him as an influence on art and activism, he is so much more. He wrote over 3,000 songs in his lifetime — although relatively few were ever recorded — and he was a highly skilled visual artist.

Author Jadi Campbell has written a story inspired by Woody Guthrie’s autobiography and 13 of his compositions to give greater insight into the man, the country and the American Dream.
