John William "Blind" Boone (May 17, 1864 - October 4, 1927) was a famous blind American pianist and composer of ragtime music.

An amazing story of overcoming the odds of being blind, brought up in poverty, and the mulatto child of a runaway slave and a Union soldier. A book rarely seen in the first edition.
