When I saw hatchet listed as one of the inspirations for this book, I was overjoyed to listen to it. Loving both survival and sci-fi, I figured it would be a match made in heaven. I was wrong. The story was cheesy and predictable, I guessed the ending after hearing the first chapter. You could tell the narrator was trying too hard because it lead to a distracting performance which took away from the story. Thank goodness it was free.

This is the story of one of the greatest records ever made - Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison - and its shocking and tragic aftermath. Join award-winning journalist Danny Robins on the 50th anniversary of the album as he takes you on a road trip back to 1968, a pivotal year in US history, to investigate the dramatic and unlikely friendship between Johnny Cash, American icon, and Glen Sherley, armed robber and Folsom inmate, and how that friendship was violently torn apart.

Great peek into an awesome album. It really helps to humanize Johnny Cash who has become a legend by exploring a story that would otherwise be swept under the rug.
