    This 232 page book documents where and when the King was made. In 1954 Elvis Presley arrived in East Texas. He was 19 years old, a lanky country boy, unsure of his abilities and unrefined in his trade. But over the ensuing months his non-stop touring of Texas changed him forever. Elvis played small venues (school gyms, roadhouses, dance halls, county fairs, juke joints, speak easies). Elvis played small towns (Gladewater, Hawkins, Tyler, Longview, Sweetwater, Amarillo, Lubbock, Alpine). And in t This 232 page book documents where and when the King was made. In 1954 Elvis Presley arrived in East Texas. He was 19 years old, a lanky country boy, unsure of his abilities and unrefined in his trade.

Elvis played small towns (Gladewater, Hawkins, Tyler, Longview, Sweetwater, Amarillo, Lubbock, Alpine). And in the caldron of unairconditioned Texas, young Elvis Presely grew into an unprecedented force of nature. Performing night after night -- in 1955 Elvis did over 100 concerts in Texas alone -- Presley's polite shyness evolved into a swaggering snarl. This is a remarkable telling of that transformation. The author's adoration for Elvis is unrestrained on these pages. And some may criticize that. But given the story he's telling, I didn't have a problem with it at all. For students of Texas music or Elvis Presley this is, indeed, a good read.
