I am a fan of music. I play the guitar. I love to read about any musician if there is a good story to their life, which is nearly the case with any musician. It just seems that anybody who is gifted to play the blues also has a life story that brings heart to their music. Doc Watson was a man whose life brings inspiration to me and my intent to hone my skills on my guitar, though I don't think I'll ever match Doc Watson no matter how much I practice. He was smooth and graceful and poured his soul into his music. I am so glad to find this biography and I thank Kent Gustavson for putting this together. Gustavson has a writing style that is very easy to follow. Filled with quotes and anecdotes from other musicians and well-known people, the book shows what a humble man he was, even though the grief of his son's death. It is a heart-warming book that will leave you with the realization of how deeply Doc Watson impacted our culture.

I am about half-way through this book and already feel close to Doc's inner feelings. This book is well written and well researched. I had actually purchased 4 of these books before Doc's passing. One was for my father-in-law, One was for each of my two children and one for my husband and myself. Can't put the book down. I will probably purchase more in the future to give as gifts. Thank you!
