“Some memories just won’t die,” country music legend Marty Robbins sang in one of his final recordings before his death from heart failure on December 8th, 1982.
In these recollections, Marty’s twin sister Mamie tells about their childhood in and around Phoenix, Arizona.
Descended from Texas and Arizona cowboys and Utah Mormons on their mother's side and Polish stock from Michigan on their father's, Marty and Mamie spent their early years in poverty. What they lacked in material wealth though, they found in the riches of their desert playground.
Sadly, Mamie passed away before this account saw print, but the adventures she shared with her brother live on in these vivid and heartfelt descriptions.
