Based on the childhood of noted African-American songwriter Elizabeth "Libba" Cotten. Teaching herself to play guitar left-handed, Elizabeth was only 11 years old when she wrote her first song--"Freight Train, " now a folk music classic. Her unique style of playing guitar (upside down and backwards), from which the term "cotton-picking" is derived, has inspired countless other artists. Full-color illustrations.
