EAST TEXAS RED ~








OUR LAND ~






Here is one of the finest paragraphs in the book:
“Berlin and Guthrie shared a midcentury balance of confidence without machismo, a stoicism born of deprivation, a toughness born of struggle, a steadiness that neither sought nor feared difficulty, tempered with a hope and optimism born of having survived hard times. Our patriotic songwriters who have followed them haven’t had that mix.”
