This is an auction for MORE MILES THAN MONEY: JOURNEYS THROUGH AMERICAN MUSIC, by Garth Cartwright.

"This compelling on-the-road search for living American roots music is a trip worth taking."
- Library Journal review:

"Cartwrights' journey across the U.S. provides as vivid and insightful an account of the birth-sites and indispensable artists still existing across America's musical landscape as you are likely to find in literature if you searched 100 years. In an odyssey comprising vast stretches of the Southwest, the South, and Chicago, Cartwright, a writer of formidable energy and talent, turns his gaze, at once pitiless and loving, on the worker bees of America's musical originality and culture: the women and men of the barrios, reservations, plantations, hollers, hicktowns, mining camps and shantys, whose homespun evocations of the glories and struggles of everyday life gave blues, jazz, country, honky-tonk,Tejano, and rock n roll, not only to America, but to the world. "More Miles..." is a penetrating, witty, bluntly unsentimental exploration of what this music is, why it is important, where it came from -- and why; and, finally, what has become of it and its few remaining icons and innovators, in 21st century America."
