Woody Guthrie

Book of Earth

€ 27.95

Newly discovered, and with an Introduction by Johnny Depp and Douglas Brinkley, legendary folk singer and American icon Woody Guthries only finished novel :a prophetic and powerful portrait of two hardscrabble farmers struggling to survive the elements and other powerful forces of destruction during the Dust Bowl.

Filled with the homespun lyricism and authenticity that have made his songs legendary, this is the story of an ordinary couple's dream of a better life and their search for love and meaning in a corrupt world. Tike and Ella May Hamlin struggle to plant roots in the arid land of Texas. Living in a precarious wooden shack, they yearn for a sturdy house that will protect them from the treacherous elements.

Thanks to a government pamphlet, Tike has the know-how to build a simple adobe dwelling, a structure made from the land itself fireproof, windproof, a house of earth. The land on which Tike and Ella May live and work on is not theirs, due to larger forces beyond their control including ranching conglomerates and banks and their adobe house remains painfully out of reach.

A story of rural realism and progressive activism, Hou'sE Of Earth is a searing portrait of hardship and hope set against a ravaged landscape. Combining the moral urgency and narrative drive of John 'steinbeck with the erotic frankness of D.H. Lawrence, it is a powerful tale of America from one of our greatest artists.
