Ain't No Grave: The Life & Legacy of Brother Claude Ely is a fun-read. I enjoyed reading it a lot. When I first picked up the book to read it, I was hoping it would keep my attention and perhaps entertain my current state of boredom. Instead, I was delighted to find it not only entertained me but it also captivated me. My wife bought the book at because she likes American roots music and its history. This book certainly fits into that category, but it also was very raw and dealt with issues often neglected in mountain history including the deeply held faith of Southerners. I personally liked how each chapter was different, but unbenownst to me, always related to the ultimate conclusion. I'll try not to spoil it for you. But yes, it's a superb book. And I plan on reading it again! I'm glad my wife ordered it.
