Literary Question

Sun Nov 7 14:27:28 EST 2004

I have a 19-year-old nephew who's become fascinated with the blues. He
discovered 60s-era folk singers at art school - Phil Ochs, early Dylan,
Tom Rush, etc. and worked his way back to Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly. I
introduced him to the blues by sneaking him into local clubs, and he
decided to go back to the beginning in that genre too and has been
listening to Son House, John Hurt and Fred McDowell. I'd like to get him
a book for Christmas and am wondering what would be the best one in
terms of history. Deep Blues? The Land Where Blues Began? Lost Highway?
Any input would be appreciated.
