Who Was Elvis Presley? by Geoff Edgers

Book Description

Put on your blue suede shoes and get ready for another addition to the Who Was ? series! The King could not have come from humbler origins: Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, during the Depression, he grew up with the blues music of the rural South, the gospel music of local churches, and the country-western classics. But he forged a sound all his own and a look that was all his own, too. With curled lip, swiveling hips, and greased pompadour, Elvis changed popular music forever, ushering in the age of rock and roll. Geoff Edgers s fascinating biography of this icon of American pop culture includes black and- white illustrations on nearly every spread."
