About "Cash: The Autobiography"
"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 for 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 this compelling memoir are the friendships of a lifetime, with such fellow artists as Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, and Bob Dylan - and with Dr. Billy Graham, who so inspired Cash's own faith."--BOOK JACKET.
