Rebecca Joan Thacker had just celebrated her 11th birthday when word was received that her father had been killed in the Civil War. She was barely 13 when two bushwhackers dragged her into the barn on the family farm and raped her. The month before her 14th birthday she gave birth to a baby girl. A month prior to her 15th birthday, Becky’s mother died, leaving her all alone to raise a child.  Becky’s uncles, Ike, Jesse, and Caleb Branson were lawmen in the West. One by one, the Branson brothers left the hills of Missouri and headed west. Ike and Jesse worked their way across the land working as ranch hands, Indian scouts, and finally lawmen. Caleb lost his wife and newborn child, sold his farm, and headed to Texas to try and become a Texas Ranger. Ike and Jesse Branson become deputy US marshals, Ike in New Mexico and Jesse in California.  Becky Thacker’s mother was a Branson before she married. Becky was the last of the clan to leave Missouri and seek the wide open spaces of the west. Missouri provided no opportunities for Becky, so she joined a small wagon train bound for Texas and a new life away from the accusing eyes of pious neighbors. The wagon train was attacked by Indians and Becky found herself alone in the wilds with only a shotgun and her grit to sustain her and her baby daughter. After surviving a harrowing journey to Dallas, Texas, she established a life for herself and her daughter, Susan. Then her world was turned upside down when Comancheros abducted her daughter. After the men in her church and the man who represented the law refused to go after the Comancheros, Becky took the only recourse available and went after them herself.  During the quest to find and get her daughter, Becky meets Kenny Branson, the son of one of her cousins. Becky and her daughter, Susan, both love Kenny but he is her uncle’s son. Nothing can come of love between first cousins. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Cunningham.

Sam Phillips

Sam 'The Man Who Invented Rock n' Roll' Phillips, was born on 5th January 1923 in Florence, Alabama, the youngest of eight and the seventh surviving child of a family that lived in a remote rural colony called the Lovelace Community. His father, Charlie, had a gift for farming, which was brought to an end by the Depression. His mother picked guitar and showed the kind of forbearance that allowed her to name her youngest child after the doctor who delivered him drunk and then had to be put to bed himself. And yet from these unprepossessing origins, in 1951 he made what is widely considered to be the first rock 'n' roll record, Ike Turner and Jackie Brenston's 'Rocket 88'. He also recorded the artist he still considers the greatest talent with whom he ever worked, Howlin' Wolf ('I was blinded by the sound of his voice; it was so bad it was beautiful'). He recorded B.B. King and Rufus Thomas at the outset of their careers, until in the summer of 1953 a shy eighteen-year-old kid with sideburns, just graduated from high school, wandered into his studio to make a record 'for his mother' - and in hopes that somehow he might get noticed. Elvis Presley's success, and the subsequent triumph of rock 'n' roll, was initially propelled to an almost astonishing degree by a limited number of releases by Carl 'Blue Suede Shoes' Perkins, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis from this tiny one-man label. The structure of Peter Guralnick's dazzling book is a mix of the biographical - particularly at the beginning when Sam was working eighteen-to-twenty hours a day zeroing in on his vision - and the anecdotal. Here is one shining moment in the history of popular culture. And Sam Phillips was the man who brought it all about.
