We know Woody Guthrie as a role model for Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, as the bard of Greenwich Village, and of course as the scribe of America's other national anthem "This Land is Your Land." What we read in these pages is that Woody Guthrie became the Woody we know when he came to Los Angeles. He met the people. He saw the land that was his land, your land, my land. His eyes opened, his message sharpened, and his words were on their way to iconic.

Twelve essays tell the story of WOODY GUTHRIE L.A. 1937 TO 1941. The place changed him.
