    Details

    He is "The Man In Black." Country music legend. The "Quintessential American troubadour." An icon of rugged individualism, who's been to hell and lived to tell the tale. The demons he's wrestled with resonate in every note he sings. Now, in this unforgettable autobigraphy, Johnny Cash recounts the highs and lows, the struggles and hard-won triumphs of his remarkable life.

    At sixty-five, Cash's extraordinary career spans four decades and a variety of musical styles, including country, folk, gospel, and rock. He is, in fact, the only musician in history to score a triple crown: being inducted into the Songwriter's, Country Music, and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame.

    Cash reflects on the mosaic of his life with his trademark brand of honesty, humility, and humor. It's all here. His childhood on an Arkansas cotton farm. The early years at Sun Records; being fired from the Grand Ole Opry; his life on the road; meeting and performing fro world leaders; the years of addiction to amphetamines and pain pills; his attempt to kill himself and the profound, life-saving spiritual awakening that pulled him through; and his deep devotion to his wife, June, and their family.

    Here, in his own words, Cash sets the record straight, dispelling a few myths (contrary to popular belief, he never did serve jail time) and looking unsparingly at his own turbulent past.

    Also, woven throughout his compelling memoir are the friendships of a lifetime, with such fellow artists as Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, and Bob Dyland - and with Dr. Billy Graham, who so inspired Cash's own faith.

    Cash is a powerful, revealing look at the man behind the legend. Including dozens of never-before-published photos (some from Cash's own family scrapbooks), this fascinating memoir reads like a classic Cash song, filled with candor, wit, and the wisdom of a man who has truly "walked the line."

    Printed in 1997, this book is sold used in great condition with dust jacket included.
