We begin our trek through the woodlands. En route to the ruins, we hear the frenzied rustling of tree branches. In the cloying heat of the rainforest, the cedro (British Honduras cedar) showers us with falling leaves,
thanks to the crazy antics of a Howler monkey convinced he's a gymnast. With a vociferous bark that sends the hairs bristling on the nape of our necks, he catapults himself onto the far-flung limb of a wild coffee tree.

JR (Johnny) Cash was three years old when his parents, Ray and Carrie Cash, moved to Dyess as part of the Dyess Colony Resettlement Area in 1935.
The young boy grew up, went to church there and even suffered his first loss when his beloved brother Jack died following a sawmill accident in 1944. Now,
visitors can see the boyhood world of Johnny Cash.
