Abstract:

[This] is a long-overdue book about the most important family in American musical history. The Carter Family are our collective link to the past, not simply to the southern past, either, but to the enormous, antithetically mixed culture that would finally produce the most creative and interesting nation on earth. The story of the Carter Family is [also] a bittersweet saga of love and fulfillment, sadness and loss. [The book] is more than just a biography of a family; it is also a journey into another time, almost another world. But their story resonates today and lives on in the timeless music they created.-Dust jacket.
