One of the most gifted cultural commentators of his generation, Nicholas Dawidoff traces the story of country music in its golden period, from Jimmie Rodgers to Emmylou Harris, via the Carter Family, Ralph Stanley, the Louvin Brothers and, of course, the indelible Johnny Cash. Journeying himself from Mace Springs, Virginia, to Bakersfield, California, Dawidoff evokes the spirit, passion and pain that informs only true country music.
