“I would lie upon my back searching the clouds for the face of Jesus. The mountains formed a frame for the sky that was mine, and many times I thought I saw His face…I would do wonderful things someday. I would leave these mountains, and by some miracle with some marvelous kind of wisdom I would make kings and queens, presidents and other important people ask my advice and listen to me. I would share with them this wonderful world of Christ that was mine.” First edition of award-winning American singer June Carter Cash’s warm and witty memoir. Wife of thirty-five years to Johnny Cash, daughter of legendary country musician Maybelle Carter, and a major talent in her own right, Carter Cash unflinchingly recounts her life in the Carter Family constellation. She shares memories from her early childhood in Appalachia, the ups and downs of success as a performer, the struggles the primary men in her life–both her father and husband–had with alcoholism, all the while remaining a devoted follower of Christ. The volume is interspersed with Carter Cash’s own poetry and illustrated throughout with several personal photos in black-and-white. Shallow closed tears to unclipped dust jacket. Very good.
