Description

He is "The Man in Black." Country music legend. The "quintessential American troubadour". An icon of rugged individualism, who's been to hell and back, and tells the tale as never before. In this unforgettable autobiography, Johnny Cash talks straight about the highs and lows, the struggles and hard-won triumphs, and the people who have shaped him.In his own words, Cash sets the record straight--and dispels a few myths--as he looks unsparingly at his remarkable life: from his turbulent past to the joys of the present to his plans down the road. Here, too, are the friends of a lifetime, including Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, and Dr. Billy Graham. As powerful and memorable as one of his classic songs, Cash is filled with the candor, wit, and wisdom of a man who has truly "walked the line". "Engaging... Written with honesty and spiritual insight.... Cash's stories and strength shine." --Chicago Sun-Times "Insightful, relaxed, and conversational.... The stories sing." --New York Times Book Review "Gives a feel for what it might be like to spend some time with him... Cash is a good storyteller... Fascinating... Rich anecdotes... Interesting observations... Any Cash fan will find a lot here to enjoy." --Boston Globe "Cash has always been cool." --Country Music magazine With 16-pages of never-before-seen photos
