9781575054643: Woody Guthrie: America's Folksinger (Trailblazer Biographies)
From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6 This basic, straightforward biography fits nicely between Bonnie Christensen's picture book Woody Guthrie: Poet of the People (Knopf, 2001) and Elizabeth Partridge's This Land Was Made for You and Me (Viking, 2002), a lengthier, more sophisticated work. While covering the standard facts, Coombs has also included a few tidbits and anecdotes that are not found in Partridge's work. Troubling aspects of Guthrie's life, such as the many tragic family deaths he endured; his irresponsible behavior toward his first wife and their children; and his frightening, violent outbursts, which grew worse as his Huntington's disease progressed, are either discussed briefly and simply or excluded altogether. The text is accompanied by black-and-white captioned photographs, some familiar from other biographies and some unique to this volume. This is a solid addition to the growing body of resources documenting the life of the musician and the important events of 20th-century American history that shaped his colorful life and work. -Ginny Gustin, Sonoma County Library System, Santa Rosa, CA
