 Author Michael Streissguth 
Edited Ring Of Fire: The Johnny Cash Reader 


On  January 13, Johnny Cash (1932 – 2003 ) took the stage at Folsom prison in Folsom  California. The event and the album, Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, propelled him to worldwide superstardom with his definitive rendering of I Still Miss Some The Long Black Veil and, of course Folsom Prison Blues. He reached new audiences ignited tremendous growth in the country music industry, and connected with fans in a way no other artist has before or since.

Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison is an engrossing, riveting account of the day, what led to it, and what came after. Michael Streissguth skillfully places the album and concert in the larger context of Cash’s artistic development, the era’s popular music, and California’s prison system, uncovering new angles and exploding a few myths along the way. Scrupulously reached, richly informed by the author’s unprecedented access to Folsom Prison and Columbia record’s archives and fully illustrated with over 100 photos – many never before published – legendary photographer Jim Marshall, Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison shows how Johnny Cash forever became a champion of the down-trodden, as well as one of the most enduring forces of American music

You may promise that I will unveil my life just as clearly and honestly as I know how. I’m including the failures as well as the times spent in finding strength, states Johnny Cash in the opening paragraphs of his new book.

The Hollywood Bowl, and on the cover of Look Magazine (but) some times when I’m alone and I sing “My Prayer Again” that’s when I feel higher and better than any time I’ve ever been on stag, because its….a reminder every time I sing it that God does answer prayer. The lesson shared are deeply personal and humbling, as Johnny Cash tells his life story in Man In Black.    

This book gives the reader an in-depth look at the pressures and problems inherent in show-business life, and reveals how a live serenely in the vortex of a sometimes chaotic whirl.   

Johnny Cash Is an American tradition. His words and songs portray the very heart of   America  : the homes, churches, prisons, Highways, and railroad. Rising form poverty to superstardom, this man’s deep voice carries the ring of sincerity and experience, for he has risen from the depths of despair to the heights of Christian commitment. Johnny Cash is   America  ’s in song and “God’s Superstar.”
