CHAPTER BY CHAPTER

if you have read the book, or are thinking about reading it, you will know that the book is about an estranged father and son, Bruce and James, who try to reconnect by travelling the life and songs of Johnny Cash. Each chapter is named after a Johnny Cash song, and that song may even form part of the chapter, as each chapter deals with different aspects of Johnny Cash's life, following it from cradle to grave. They discover a lot about Johnny Cash, and even more about each other.

What you may not have spotted is that that the relationship between the pair is a reflection of Johnny's life at the time of each chapter. When Johnny was up, they were up. When he was down, they were down.

Click on each chapter title for photographs, as you might be interested in seeing some of the places I talk about. All of the pictures are ones taken on the trip I did in order to write the book.
