about

Mojo Hand tells the story of one of America’s greatest bluesmen, whose authentic songs and unique style of guitar playing helped shape modern music. A previously unpublished black and white photograph of the influential bluesman, Lightnin’ Hopkins, dominates the cover design, he turns toward the reader as if ready to tell a story through song.
