Marge Guthrie had decided it was time for a difinitive biography of Woody to be written, so she opened up all of her files of Woody's writing (published AND unpublished), cartoons, diaries and lyrics to Klein. It was the only time in her life she ever did that.

To the highest bidder I'll send you a hard-back copy of Woody Guthrie:
A Life, that I picked up at one of the annual used book sales up at
Ohio State. And as an added bonus, I'll give you a copy of the
American Masterpiece show on Woody Guthrie, complete with Louisiana
Public Broadcasting watermark logo showing for the entire program.
The two Mermaid Ave CDs (by Billy Bragg & Wilco) are not included.
Neither are two Woody Guthrie 78s my dad has (for as long as I could remember).
