Cash – The Autobiography of Johnny Cash

First person

This fascinating autobiography of the country music legend Johnny Cash recounts his struggling days, his highs and lows, as well as his hard-won achievements throughout his extraordinary life. His autobiography takes the reader from Cash’s childhood on an Arkansas cotton farm to his early years at the Sun Records. One gets to read about his life on the road and meetings with, and performances for, world leaders. The book also encapsulates and discusses the darker side of his life – the years of his addiction to amphetamines and pain killers, a suicide attempt and the spiritual awakening that managed to pull him through his chaotic life. He looks unsparingly at his unstable past, but remains a man of honesty, humility and humour. His autobiography reveals personal instances of his journey which include the friendships he had with Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and Billy Graham and much more that happened throughout the illustrious life of the celebrity that he was.
