Four Boys and a Guitar: The Story and Music of the Mills Brothers, by Douglas E. Friedman, is the only biography of this famous American singing group. 70 Chart hits over a 37-year period; more than 600 titles recorded; over 50 million records sold! The book tells the group’s story from their humble beginnings in Piqua, Ohio to their rise to international stardom. The racial aspects of their story are also covered, especially as they mirrored the racial history of the country over the course of their career.
