From the Back Cover:

Two sisters. Two voices. One Heart.

As the only sisters in rock who write their own music and play their own instruments, Ann and Nancy Wilson have always stood apart—certainly from their male counterparts but also from their female peers. By refusing to let themselves and their music be defined by their gender, and by never allowing their sexuality to overshadow their talent, the Wilson sisters have made their mark, and in the process paved the way for many of today's female artists.

In Kicking & Dreaming, Ann and Nancy recount a journey that has taken them from the back roads of Vancouver, where they got their start as a band, to the pinnacle of success—and sometimes excess. They reveal the truth about the relationships that inspired "Magic Man" and "Crazy on You," the reality of life on the road as single women and then as mothers, and the thrill of performing and in some cases partying with their rock idols. Through it all, the sisters draw strength from a family bond that trumps everything else.

About the Author:

Ann & Nancy Wilson are the leaders of the rock band Heart, whose albums have sold thirty-five million records worldwide. They continue to tour all over the world. In 2013, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
