A classic American success story, country music singer and actress Dolly Parton started out in a two-room shack in the Tennessee mountains and now has her own theme park. Alanna Nash's updated biography covers the early years fronting Porter Wagoner's band, and the subsequent solo career that had critics in Nashville wondering if the five-foot singer with the outrageous figure and the mountain of blonde hair wasn't heading off in the direction of pop music. Nash depicts Parton as a determined woman with an unflaggingly bright, companionable disposition-a personality that can handle numerous accolades (Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, and membership in the Country Music Association Hall of Fame) and disappointments (her 70's TV show) with sincere amusement.
