This is a long overdue book about the most important family in American musical history. The Carter Family are our collective link to the past, not simply to the Southern past, but to the enormous, antithetically mixed culture that would finally produce the most creative and interesting nation on earth. In some ways this book is a sad book, but it's an indispensable one for the person who wants to learn about the origins of American music. I don't think anyone who reads this book will forget its portrayal of the mist-shrouded southern mountains and of the travail and spiritual strength that was characteristic of its people.

The lives and music of the Carter Family. Even if you don't love their music, you might like the history of the times.
