Thread Name: Review: Carter Family Biography
Subject: RE: Review: Carter Family Biography
I have the book. Read it a couple of months ago. It's thoroughly researched and gives an excellent picture of the Carter Family in its various permutations (speaking of pictures, there are quite a few). Very well written, it reads like a novel.
There are lyrics to a few songs, but it's not intended to be any kind of songbook. There are plenty of other sources of Carter Family songs.
