Woody, Cisco and Me is a "must read" romp, reading like a novel, that gives the reader rare insight into World War II experiences in the Merchant Marine with Woody Guthrie, his folksinging friend Cisco Houston, and Jim Longhi, who was shamed by Woody and Cisco into joining with them. Brilliantly told - with pathos and humor - it is an irresitible story of bravery and hardship, sacrifice and boredom, and life and death, appealing not only to folk music fans, but to those interested in tales of World War II adventures as well.
