Product Description

Product Description

"You are invited to take a journey, along with the author, to her hometown in the American South, a unique culture of relative safety within a sheltered small town in the mid-twentieth century. You will discover a time when sorority girls were virgins, baton twirlers mattered, and Elvis Presley's hips were the wildest thing on the block.

Against the backdrop of groundbreaking musical environments from Memphis, Tennessee to the Mississippi Delta, you will share stories that follow Elvis and his rise to fame through the eyes of his Graceland neighbors in the small suburb of Whitehaven. The author's mother, a young girl who was as much a celebrity in this small town as Elvis, reveals never-before-shared photographs and stories that chronicle a town, an extraordinary man, and a time forever lost to history, each on the brink of explosion and change."

5.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly enjoyable read! 24 Sep 2004
By Heather - Published on
I very much like this book about Elvis, as told from the perspective of one neighboring family whom Elvis looked up to from the minute he started to become successful. Anyone who wants to know about Elvis' early days and his desire to be accepted into the old money society set in Memphis should definitely read this book. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 17 Jan 2004
By Susie Goodall - Published on
Getting inside the early world of Elvis was fascinating. Sometimes sad, sometimes surprising, sometimes funny, but definitely more revealing and intimate than a lot of other books. I'm so glad I found this!

Even the children betray Elvis Presley for only damned money.
Elvis always respected children and these little people sell him wholesale.
