Bound for Glory
Woody Guthrie

Woody Guthrie's Bound for Glory raised my social consciousness several notches when it was thrust upon me by a fellow soldier 45 years ago in California. My friend's words as he handed me the book were, "You're from Oklahoma, and you never heard of Woody Guthrie? Here!" Woody remains a famous Oklahoman, and I remain a lover of his music and a person concerned with social justice and the way the poor are treated. Woody's songs and his books went straight to my heart and changed my life forever.
