Bob sat at Woody's feet. Strumming the guitar, he quietly began singing a song he'd written, and a hush fell over the room. Song to Woody was Bob's first real folk song--a gift to his hero and friend.
"Hey hey, Woody Guthrie, I wrote you a song..."
When Bob had finished, Woody's face lit up like the sun.
Bob Dylan is a musical icon, an American Legend, and, quite simply, a poet. His music has evolved from counter-cultural folk to rock. This book takes the reader to a time when Bob Dylan was just Bob Zimmerman, a kid from Minnesota.
Readers can follow Bob as he renames himself after his favorite poet, Dylan Thomas, and as his love for music takes him far away from the coal-mining town of his birth. Though Bob always wanted to be a musician, his life changes forever when he hears the music of folk legend Woody Guthrie, and his passion for Woody's music takes him on a journey to New York City, where he meets his idol and future mentor.
