Taking into account evidence that conflicts sharply with the well-worn fable of Son House, Daniel Beaumont illuminates the obscurity of House's 20 years in Rochester, New York.  In his writing, Beaumont gives a detailed and perceptive account of Son House's primary musical legacy of his recordings for Paramount in the thirties and his Library of Congress recordings in the forties.  While researching the life of Son House, Beaumont discovered connections between numerous facts and fictions as well as new information that bring a tragic light to House's lifelong struggles and self-imposed disappearance.
