    by Frank Moriarty

Born the son of a migrant worker during the Depression, Cash has created a vast repertoire of songs that speak to andd for the working man. His numerous hit singles - from "Five Foot High and Rising" to "The Ballad of Ira Hayes" - have covered such aspects of American life as the flooding of the Mississippi in 1937 and the plight of the American Indian. Cash has become a country music icon of unequaled stature.

    One of only a few musicians inducted into both the Rock and Roll and Country Music Halls of Fame, Johnny Cash has been performing for more than four decades. Yet Cash remains a vital musical foce. He has incluenced many current artists, has recorded with such stars as Paul McCartney and U2, and continues to tour on his own and with The Highwaymen. Cash has always been committed to his craft and to the integrity of his lyrics. This committment is reflected in his unadorned "Man In Black" image and direct singing style and has won him the admiration of peers and fans alike.

    "Johnny Cash" is an insightful portrait of this living musical legend. This colorful volume traces Cash's career from his first single on Sun Records, "Cry, Cry, Cry," to his recently released album, "Unchained," and recounts the numerous tours, recording sessions, and television and movie appearances in between.

    Johnny Cash is one of the most important figures of popular music, and this book is a celebration of his life, career, and music. Written by veteran music journalist, "Johnny Cash" is filled with full-color and black-and-white photographs of Cash performing as well as relaxing at home with his family. Flipping through these pages, readers will become well-acquainted with "The Man In Black" and understand the grit and determination that have made him what he is today.
