Inhaltsangabe: Seeds of Man is based on Woody Guthrie’s adventurous 1931 trip through Texas. Nineteen-year-old Woody, accompanied by family members, drives from Pampa in the Panhandle to the rugged Big Bend country in a wheezing Model-T Ford truck. They are searching for a silver mine that Uncle Jeff had discovered and then lost. This autobiographical novel, originally published in 1976—nearly ten years after Woody Guthrie’s death—shows how his father’s search for riches was a dead-end street. The characters dare and do, drink Papa’s high-proof whiskey, eat out of cans, meet real characters, make love, and sing the lively songs composed by Woody along the way.
“A marvelous chronicle of the irrepressible, rambunctious, ornery fun of the poor. Woody is their laureate . . . the best spokesman in word and music that the American proletariat has ever had.”—New York Times Book Review (New York Times Book Review )
“A vivid celebration of youth. . . . [T]old in broad, Rabelaisian detail that’s a delight to read.”—Boston Globe (Boston Globe )
“Full of compassion for human suffering, this is an emotional and authentic portrait of life in the Great Depression, set in a romantic landscape of primitive beauty.”—Library Journal (Library Journal )
“An important description of the way we grow up. Here and there it tells us a lot of things we really knew about ourselves all along, but which we perhaps didn’t think about enough. It’s a hymn to life.”—Chicago Daily News (Chicago Daily News )
“A fast-moving story that would make a great movie, from the great opening scene to the great closing scene. It is full of symbolism for youth in this modern, changing world.”—Pete Seeger (Pete Seeger )
