Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The only son of country legends Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash pens a heartfelt narrative of his mother's life that nicely combines biography, autobiography and inspirational guidebook into a fitting tribute to a woman whose life and career embodied modern country music. Musician and producer Cash spends the first half of his book reviewing his mom's early days performing with the legendary Carter Family in 1939, and her later marriage to Johnny Cash. This story has been notably told before in June's two autobiographies and Mark Zwonitzer's definitive Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone?, which Cash dutifully cites, while adding some fascinating stories, such as a possible more-than-flirtation with the young Elvis Presley and various aspects of Johnny and June's courtship that he feels the film Walk the Line lacked. But the book really begins to soar in its second half. Cash unflinchingly details the addictions that beset himself and many of his sisters—as well as June and Johnny's addictions late in their lives—while lovingly showing how throughout this time, and until her death in 2003, June's unshakable religious faith infused her life and helped inspire her children to continue the legacy of her family's music and its strong work ethic.

I could not put this book down, It was the first book that I could believe to be true because of who it was written by. I have been reading all the books about John and June Cash but untill now did I get the true picture. It was wonderful what life was like for the son of these two people that I have loved all my life and for him to share was it was great even the hard parts! Warm ,witty and heart braking is how I felt reading it and at the end I found I had to put it down to go wipe my eyes. Thank You John Carter and I hope this will not be the last book you write. It was just wonderful!

My husband and I were anxious to purchase and read several of the books regarding June and Johnny Cash. This book was a surprise. I really didn't expect so much new information and such candid accounts of painful times. The movie Walk the Line was only the love story of Johnny and June, it didn't address his first marriage or children except in light of their relationship and it didn't go past them getting married. This is a much different and personal story than anyone else has told. No doubt, John Carter loved his mother but he also had a need to tell "his truth." Addiction is not beat overnight, it is beaten one day at a time for the rest of your life. June and Johnny didn't pretend to be heros but point the way to strive. Seems like John Carter may be following in their footsteps. Thanks for the book.

This book was one of the history of The famous Carter Family singers,and one of tears and laughter.John Carter Cash's book about his mother is one of the most honest stories I have read about this family,ever.The human side that John reveals,in his mother's,father's,and his own life,is sometimes shocking and overwhelming at times,but,neccessary,to tell the complete story of his heritage and legacy.You will admire the family,even more than you do now,because John,with his heart-touching words,exposes them with love and compassion,for all the world to see.The story of both his parents' deaths are particularly poignanat,because they were our "family" too.

I enjoyed learning more about Maybelle, Ezra and the whole extended Carter family. The love John Carter Cash has for his mother, June, is evident throughout the book. It is also obvious he had a lot of issues with his parents. I'm sure it was very cathartic for him to write this. But I take issue with John's claim that his mother abused drugs later in life. This accusation casts such a dark shadow on June's memory. Who is left to argue with him? At the time he found his mother in her dressing room (lying on the floor, fully dressed with her eyes closed "meditating") she was in her late 60's. A middle-aged woman, getting ready to perform in spite of chronic back pain, arthritis and painful legs. And he was surprised to find her lying down and using pain medication? She was probably tired and her back hurt! Maybe the reason Johnny Cash never confronted June; or that she refused to "admit" she was addicted, was because it just wasn't true! Sometimes prescription pain medication is actually used for the purpose it was intended...for pain. Her not being as mentally sharp as when she was younger, doesn't prove she had a drug problem. She "never got angry, fell down, or picked a fight with her loved ones when she was under the influence of narcotics." But "she simply stopped speaking in full sentences and went off into her own world." John was 27 years old, recently out of drug rehab and frustrated by his mother's "emotional abandonment" of him at the time. It is quite possible, John's own chronic drug use, distorted his perception of what really happened. I see June as an aging, emotionally exhausted wife, mother and entertainer, coping as best she could. And since she's not here to defend herself, I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt.Read more ›

This book gives us a very detailed look into the private lives of both Johnny and June Carter Cash told in a way that only someone who was really there could tell it. There isn't any sugar-coating---John Carter gives us a very frank and honest account of what life was like behind closed doors at the Cash household. Nothing really earth-shattering revealed--if anything, a more "human" light is cast upon the "legends" which just made me love them even more.

The only thing not covered in this book is what kind of relationship all the "children" had with each other. Johnny had four daughters from his first marriage; June had two daughters from her first two marriages, and then they had John-Carter together. Although all of the children are at least mentioned in most books, none really elaborate on what kind of relationships they shared. Now that would be an interesting book, I'm sure. Maybe one or more of the children will address that subject someday.

Overall, it is a very interesting and informative book which I really enjoyed. It's truly a must-have for any real Carter/Cash fan.

What a book! What a story! Like so many others who have followed the life of Johnny Cash, and June when she became a part of that life, I thought I knew more than a little bit about them. How wrong I was. John Carter sheds new and loving light on a true American love story. I have tremendous respect for both his willingness to share this view of his family and his ability to tell the story. It must have been a very difficult undertaking, and one that I hope was also very cathartic. It's hard to think of anyone who could maintain a life and marriage and share so much love with all she came in contact with as June Carter Cash did through so many of life's ups and downs.

Thank you, John Carter. Everyone with even a passing interest in country music and the historical significance of your family owes you a debt of gratitude.
