Gathering together previously unpublished photographs, lyrics, art, notes, and recollections from the Cash family archives, John Carter paints an intimate portrait of his father’s rich inner life, exploring Johnny Cash’s creative spirit, his fundamentally loving nature, and his inspiring persistence.
A record of a deep and ongoing conversation between father and son, House of Cash documents Johnny Cash’s drive to live deliberately as he worked to determine his values, share them with those close to him, and reaffirm them on a daily basis.
