Ed Cray: Ramblin' Man: The Life and Times of Woody Guthrie (2004)

The latest in long-winded Guthrie biographies, competing with Joe Klein's for the title of "authoritative biography."

Joe Klein: Woody Guthrie: A Life (1999)

The first in-depth biography of Woody Guthrie to come out—surprisingly, not until 1999.

Robert Santelli and Emily Davidson (editors): Hard Travelin': The Life and Legacy of Woody Guthrie (1999)

This is an academic volume reflecting on the meaning of Guthrie's life and music in American culture.

Woody Guthrie and Kathy Jacobsen: This Land is Your Land

A sweet picture book whose words are just the song lyrics. Great for little kids or big fans.

Woody Guthrie: Bound for Glory (1943)

A rambling record of some of Guthrie's traveling experiences, brought to us in the voice of the poet himself.
