For five years up to 1961, NBC's "The Ford Show" brought Tennessee Ernie Ford into 30 million homes every week. From "Sixteen Tons" - the fastest-selling single in the history of the recording business - to other smash-hit TV shows, Ford was one of the true greats of the entertainment business.In "River of No Return", Ernie's despairing son Jeffrey recounts his father's life: the spectacular success and the growing spiral of self-destruction that led him to walk away from Hollywood at the peak of his career. In the first book written chronicling the life and times of this legendary entertainer and his family, Jeffrey Ford paints a heartfelt, honest and intimate portrait of a man who's on-screen and on-air persona were loved by millions, but whose behind-the-scenes life spiralled out of control.
