8. Colin Grant, The Natural Mysics: Marley, Tosh, and Wailer (nonfiction)

In this well-researched examination of the roots of roots music, Colin Grant,ย a British-Caribbean writer, travels to Jamaica to find the earlyย history of the Wailers.ย Framed as a search for Bunny Wailer, the only living member, Grantย meets and uncovers gems along the way, building a framework thatย begins to explain how such a global cultural force emerged from such aย small corner of the receding empire.
