When I was a teenager in Tasmanian in the late 50's, one thing I remember was going to the movies with my eldest sister to see the early Elvis movie's, especially Jailhouse Rock. Every girl at that time was in "LOVE" with Elvis, even though he was thousands of miles away, and at that time Elvis would not have known where Tasmania was on the world atlas. At the movies you would hear the girls say "Geez, If I got a date with Elvis", that would be the end for me., and so on and on.

When I saw this book come up for sale I immediately purchased a copy and awaited its arrival to me here in Australia.

I thought, maybe it would be like Alanna Nash's excellent book titled "The Women Who Loved Elvis", but I was in for a little pleasant surprise.

Once I start reading a book on Elvis, depending on page size, I usually start and finish in the one reading. This book was to be no different, except that I read it twice within the same week, I liked it that much.

People who know me , know that I am an avid fan of Elvis' mother Gladys, and this book covers his mother the way that I have been told by many close to Elvis. I like stories that relate to the artist parents, and it his case Caroline has written about Elvis parent's in a beautiful way, specially in regards Gladys.

The book, gives us far away Elvis fans an insight into what was happening from the very early period of Elvis' life, his tours and more importantly the effect he had on "The Younger Ladies" at that time when the USA like Australia was still living a little in the past.

I strongly recommend that you purchase a copy of this excellent written story of a young lady who got asked for "A DATE", by a cocky young Elvis, and then managed to write a great story about meeting Elvis on those two special occasions?
verdict - 10 out of 10

A glimpse of Elvis on the cusp of becoming the King. The "Date" took place in a small southern town in the mid-fifties also on the cusp of the civil rights revolution. An age of innocence for Elvis and the south before the storm of fame for him and the sweeping away of Jim Crow laws. Caroline tells the story of the arc of time when talent took Elvis to fantastic fame and epic destruction. She provides detailed descriptions of the young Elvis and the culture of the period. This book is must read for Elvis fans as well as those who want to understand the challenges and changes that fame brings. A rich read on many levels!

I read this book and enjoyed it very much and i recommend it to all Elvis Fans. The book is from a time period that you don,t hear a lot of story's from. Elvis is still a Sun Artist and Parker has not yet signed him. The book is small but it has big stories. The price is also great in an Elvis world that tries to take its fans as much as they can. Buy this book. Enjoy this book. Hear stories about a young Hillbilly Cat.

ANYONE who is an ELVIS FAN! ANYONE WHO GREW UP IN THE 50's - Heck ANYONE who wishes to be transported back to the magical mid & late 50's to enjoy a FRESH GLIMPSE at a bygone era and a "YOUNG VERY SWEET ELVIS" before "FAME" ruined him! THIS GREAT BOOK about a Young Elvis will take you way back to a by gone era and this little piece of "the King's History" will thoroughly entertain! This is a very special piece of ELVIS HISTORY - PERIOD!! This book IS for YOU!! - Caroline gives us a fresh insight into the YOUNG, sweet, kind, very polite, mild mannered, down to earth ELVIS; and his mom & dad too! Caroline shares with us seldom read about facts about "the King (in his very YOUNG days) in the south (where they both grew up) - BEFORE he became "KING" - Personally, I couldn't put it down! It is an EASY, FUN, INFORMATIVE and QUICK read about an ELVIS NONE of us KNEW - OR Read about! - Except the beautiful young Ms Caroline!! Whom- Elvis spotted & was immediately drawn to during one of his VERY early concerts, in Sheffield, AL - Then - that very SAME night he proceeded to- Ask her for a date on a piece of torn paper - "How about a date, answer yes or no, Elvis Presley" - She went out with him THAT night - rode around in his PINK CADDY with him, They talked - alot -they dined - he kissed her, and later called her- (for a second date!) All "surreal to her" - Of course, there is ALOT of "ELVIS HISTORY" in between - but really, ANYONE WHO IS AN ELVIS FAN will THOROUGHLY ENJOY this "FRESH, EXCITING and NEW picture of a YOUNG INNOCENT ELVIS who few have ever read about - It truly is a little treasure trove of early ELVIS HISTORY! - Thank you Ms CAROLINE - for sharing this lost and now "found" piece of ELVIS HISTORY with us!!! - The KING was TRULY a KING! (before HE knew it - but YOU did!) Thank you!!~ So - "Now, Ms Carol - How About AN Autograph"?
