Hey Everyone

I'm about to go on a month long vacation and i'm looking to get a few books to keep me occupied. I'd really like to find a good, engaging book about the history of the blues. Something that isn't too dry but is very informative.

Could anyone make any suggestions?

Cheers

ps:I have about 40 bucks(cdn) to spend on books.

Chasin' That Devil Music byGayle Dean Wardlow and Edward M. Komara?


Personally, I really enjoyed Elwood's Blues. It's snappy enough to read in sections, everyone they talk to is interesting; and it never gets too dry. It's not so hot on history of the blues period, rather, it's a series of interesting personal histories and interviews with bluesmen.
