|Named Person:||Rose Maddox; Rose Maddox; Rose Maddox|
|All Authors / Contributors:||
|Description:||xxi, 299 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm|
|Responsibility:||Jonny Whiteside ; with a previously unpublished foreword by Woody Guthrie.|
In the process, Whiteside introduces us to a host of memorable characters - stars like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash; behind-the-scenes movers and shakers like record men Cliffie Stone and Bill McCall; and, at the heart of the story, the irrepressible Maddox family themselves, whose freewheeling music so faithfully reflected the hurly-burly world of California's displaced migrant workers.
Required reading for anyone fascinated with the history of country's real trendsetters.--<i>Country Weekly</i>
