This Land Is Your Land (Special Anniversary Edition)
by Kathy Jakobsen
by Woody Guthrie
Since Woody Guthrie wrote “This Land Is Your Land” in the 1940s, it has become one of the most familiar and best-loved folk songs in America. This is the only fully illustrated edition of the song in the marketplace.
Now more timely than ever, this classic is brought to life in a richly illustrated and annotated edition for the whole family to share. Legendary folksinger-songwriter Woody Guthrie’s stirring lyrics and acclaimed folk artist Kathy Jakobsen’s detailed paintings invite readers on a journey across the country, creating an unforgettable portrait of our diverse land and its people.
Featuring the complete lyrics and musical notation, as well as a biographical scrapbook, this new edition also includes a list of behind-the-scenes details about the pictures in the book compiled by Woody’s daughter, Nora Guthrie. This book is a celebration of the power of a song to move people and inspire change, passing on Guthrie’s undying belief that “this land was made for you and me” to a new generation.
