Johnny Cash’s daughter Tara Cash Schwoebel is set to release a book based on questions she asked her famous father about his childhood and personal life.

In 1995, Schwoebel gave the “Ring of Fire” hitmaker a blank book entitled, “Dad, Share Your Life With Me”, and requested he fill it with his favorite childhood memories.

Cash spent a year filling out the pages, and returned it to his daughter on her birthday in 1996. She has now turned his tome into a new book called Recollections by J.R. Cash: Childhood Memories of Johnny Cash.

In a message posted on the book’s website, Schwoebel writes, “I have held this book close to my heart for all these years. With no hesitation, knowing that Dad would be proud to share these stories, I now want to share it with his fans, friends, and family to cherish, as I do. I hope you will enjoy getting to know this boy, who became my father, as much as I did. I give that boy, and that father, all the love and respect in the world.”

The book also features personal family photos and Cash’s own handwriting. The release will coincide with the Sept. 1 reopening of her father’s boyhood home in Arkansas which has been turned into a museum.
