Description

Johnny Cash is a legend, known for his edgy, no-frills style, and is the only person ever to be inducted into three halls of fame (Country Music, Rock and Roll, and Songwriters). His unique voice and his rebel spirit have influenced numerous musicians, from Bob Dylan to Nine Inch Nails. Anee E. Neimark's richly detailed biography traces his life from his boyhood in Arkansas to his addiction to drugs as an adult and finally to redeption and success as one of the most legendary musicians of our time. 

This is one of the titles in Up Close, a riveting, all-access biography series that celebrates the leaders, artists, and legends of twentieth-century America—and the impact they had on the world. 

* "Will foster readers' appreciation of the singer-songwriter's fierce individualism and his outlaw spirit." —Booklist, starred review 

"This biography reads like an adventure story, and the action moves swiftly and captures readers' interest. . . What the author eloquently conveys, though, is her subject's ability to remain true to his faith and spirit and to harness his pain into songwriting and music." —School Library Journal
