Description
Part travelogue, part musical history, this book outlines and honors the rich traditions of gospel, blues, country, folk, and rock that fuel popular music, while also exploring America's changing national character as reflected by its songs. Through interviews, road stories, and rich music criticism, PitchforkMedia.com staff writer Amanda Petrusich traces the evolution of Americana music from Elvis to Iron and Wine, from the Carter Family to Animal Collective, from Charley Patton to Wilco.

"A terrific piece of travel writing. Amanda Petrusich takes us on a tour through the roots of American rural music, stopping at eccentric motels, visiting mythic sites of recording sessions and reciting heroic tales of song-catching and villainous accounts of song-stealing."Guardian (London)
