A narrative and photographic memoir highlighting the journey of an independent performing songwriter

From the shores of Ambergris Cay and bayous of Louisiana, to the Texas honky tonks
and legendary coffee houses nestled in the Rocky Mountains...
this a true tale about 50 years of making music, featuring over a hundred vintage photographs.
Jim's complete discography, CD catalogue, rare posters, and a player's' honor roll are included.
