“In El Rancho Grande,” by Woody Guthrie (1936; Santa Fe, N.M.), oil on board.

Johnny Deep on the book he is editing by Woody Guthrie “…in the midst of a prolonged drought; global warming is a scientific fact; and wildfires, blizzards and tornadoes increasingly ravage the American landscape. The unerring rightness of adobe living is now more apparent than ever. It’s almost as if Guthrie had prophetically written “House of Earth” with the summer of 2012 in mind.”
