Explore the life of the legendary Man in Black through his lyrics, rare photographs, and ephemera in this collectible edition featuring 125 of Johnny Cash's most iconic songs.

Authorized by the Cash estate, this book unveils the prolific songwriting career of one of country music's most beloved and influential stars. With over six hundred songs composed and ninety million records sold, Cash's impact is unparalleled.

For the first time, fifty years of Cash's songwriting are compiled in one place, including the lyrics to 125 songs and the stories behind them. Inducted into various prestigious halls of fame, Cash's work resonated not only with the nation's soul but also reflected the triumphs and challenges of his own life. The book delves into Cash's role as a poet and storyteller, tracing his journey from early life and initial successes through personal challenges, activism, and faith.

Featuring rare visual material and remembrances from Cash's son, John Carter Cash, along with "family historian" Mark Stielper, this essential collectible sheds new light on Cash's life and work.

Released on the twentieth anniversary of his passing, it stands as a landmark in music publishing, offering a profound understanding of the man and artist who shaped the American story.
