The legend of the man known around the world simply as 'Bon' only grows with each passing year - in death the AC/DC icon has become a god to millions of people - but how much of his story is myth and how much of the real man do we know? There have been books that claim to tell his story. They haven't even come close. Jesse Fink, author of the critically acclaimed international bestseller The Youngs- The Brothers Who Built AC/DC, leaves no stone unturned for Bon- The Last Highway. The 1977-80 period forged the legend of AC/DC. There wasn't a harder working band on the road in America. But, as Fink startlingly reveals in a journey that takes the reader from Austin in 1977 to London in 1980, the relentless AC/DC machine was also threatening to come apart. With unprecedented access to Bon's lovers, newly unearthed documents and a trove of never-before-seen photos, Fink has answers to all the nagging questions that have been asked for decades and discovers startling new information about his last hours to solve the mystery of how he died. But at the heart of Bon- The Last Highwayis a special - and unlikely - friendship between an Australian rock star and an alcoholic Texan troublemaker and it is told for the very first time. This is the original, forensic, unflinching and masterful biography Bon Scott has so richly deserved and music fans around the world have been waiting for.

The definitive account of AC/DC's rise to fame, when the ribald lyrics and charismatic stage presence of singer Bon Scott, along with the guitar work of Angus and Malcolm Young, defined a new, highly influential brand of rock and roll. Drawing on many interviews and featuring a gallery of rare photos, Clinton Walker traces the band's career through the life of their original front man, from small-time gigs to international success, up to Scott's shocking death in 1980. AC/DC's undiminished superstar status (they're the fourth-bestselling band of all time), and their indelible influence on a succession of genres from metal to grunge to rap, ensure that Bon Scott's presence continues to be felt strongly. HIGHWAY TO HELL offers the full story of this seminal rock figure. A consistent seller since it was first published here in 2001, HIGHWAY TO HELL has been updated for this edition. New details that have come to light in recent years about the last hours of Scott's life have been added, enabling the author to dispel persistent rumors and myths and once more set the record straight.

Bon Echo: The Denison Years documents the era when famous artists, intellectuals and theatrical personalities visited the strikingly beautiful Lake Mazinaw area in Ontario’s rugged Land O’ Lakes district, to both play and work. From the construction of Bon Echo Inn by American Dr. Weston Price to the creation of today’s Bon Echo Provincial Park, the author has been privy to the "inside" story. The struggles and ideals of the early Toronto feminist Flora MacDonald Denison and her author-playwright son, Merrill, are well recorded in this important book. The author, a good storyteller, obviously learned plenty from the old master during her many years as his manuscript typist, a relationship that ended with Merrill Denison’s death in 1975.
