The Carter Family: Don't Forget This Song is a rich and compelling original graphic novel that tells the story of the Carter Family--the first superstar group of country music--who made hundreds of recordings and sold millions of records. Many of their hit songs, such as Wildwood Flower and Will the Circle Be Unbroken, have influenced countless musicians and remain timeless country standards. The Carter Family: Don't Forget This Song is not only a unique illustrated biography, but a moving account that reveals the family's rise to success, their struggles along the way, and their impact on contemporary music. Illustrated with exacting detail and written in the Southern dialect of the time, its dynamic narrative is pure Americana. It is also a story of success and failure, of poverty and wealth, of racism and tolerance, of creativity and business, and of the power of music and love.
