: New: Book Report: She Come by it Natural

It's a biography of Dolly Parton braided together with a bit of the book author's family background. That family background might be summarized as "poor, hard-working woman," and helps the probably-privileged-upbringing reader to appreciate Parton's extra appeal to folks with that background. Parton worked hard, was poor, underestimated, disrespected… but she was talented and got very lucky, and eventually was rich, underestimated, and disrespected. But you, dear reader, will respect Parton once you read the obstacles she overcame.
