Reflections: The Life & Times of Woody Guthrie, 2001
Edited by Thelma Bray
This book begins with a nine page letter Woody wrote to his new-born niece, Mary Ann, to congratulate her on coming into the world and to offer some advice, reproduced exactly as Woody wrote it. It also includes rare letters and memorabilia of Woody's time in Pampa, Texas, where Woody lived and began writing songs. Thelma Bray is chairperson of Pampa's Tribute to Woody Guthrie, an organization that is helping to create a Woody Guthrie Folk Music Center at Harris Drug Store, where Woody worked.
