Description by

In 1962, a tenacious young Mississippi journalist began unearthing the rich history of the nearly forgotten Delta bluesmen of the 1920s and 30s. The celebrated fruits of his labor are gathered here for the first time--including his tale of finding Robert Johnson's elusive death certificate after a three-year search across four southern states.

This book by expert blues scholar Gayle Dean Wardlow reveals the stories of the great blues pioneers--many in their own words. Based on personal interviews, public records, and even door-to-door canvassing, Wardlow's lively writings reflect the unique excitement of blues search-and-discovery.
