The Delta Blues: A Coloring Book Not Just for Kids!
Who was the "Father" of the Delta Blues? What was extra-ordinary about Howlin' Wolf? How did Robert Johnson learn to play the Blues? Why did B.B. King sing in fine suits? From Mississippi cotton fields to plantation dances and juke joints, the Delta Blues was raised up by men and women who shared the pain and beauty of life in song. Their blues gave birth to jazz and rock and roll.

Herein is a collection of ten brief biographies and illustrations of the following celebrated Blues Legends: Charlie Patton, Howlin' Wolf, Son House, Bukka White, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Robert Johnson, Memphis Minnie, John Lee Hooker, R.L. Burnside and Muddy Waters.
