The first major biography of the legendary family that lay the foundation for American folk, country and rock music. For three generations, the Carter Family performed and recorded hundreds of songs that resonated with ordinary people, inspired such legends as Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan and had a lasting impact on popular music. This book tells the story of the Carter family from the 1891 birth of musical founder A.P. Carter to the creation of the original "Family" - A.P., his wife Sara and his sister-in-law Maybelle - through years of fame and public performances, which continued despite the dissolution of A.P. and Sara's marriage. Written with the full cooperation of Carter Family descendants, this biography beautifully captures the harsh realities and the romantic longings that inform not only the songs the Carters made famous, but their personal lives as well.
