Every American who has listened to the radio knows Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land." The music of the folk singer/songwriter has been recorded by everyone from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to U2. Originally blowing out of the Dust Bowl in Depression-era America, he blended vernacular, rural music and populism to give voice to millions of downtrodden citizens. Guthrie's music was politically leftist, uniquely patriotic and always inspirational.

Powerful documentary

Comments about PBS American Masters: Woody Guthrie: Ain't Got No Home DVD:

Even though I was very familiar with Guthrie, I learned interesting new facts about his life from this documentary. I had purchased the DVD for use in the high school classroom, but the story, especially the end, was darker than I had expected. After reviewing it, I don't recommend this for the classroom, but will keep it for my personal libarary. It is very well done.

Comments about PBS American Masters: Woody Guthrie: Ain't Got No Home DVD:

Gives a great background to this important American artist. I have recommended this film to my students who are doing research on the influence of Emerson and his call for the "American Poet."

Comments about PBS American Masters: Woody Guthrie: Ain't Got No Home DVD:

The best biography of Woody Guthrie, I've heard.
Terrific historical context, photos, interviews.
And the evolution of Woody's music. Outstanding video!
