The legendary Dolly Parton shares for the first time her deeply held philosophy of life and her heartfelt hopes for everyone.

Based on the hugely popular commencement speech Dolly Parton gave at the University of Tennessee, which became a sensation, Dream More is a deeper and richer exploration of the personal philosophy she has forged over the course of her astonishing career as a singer, songwriter, performer, and philanthropist.

Using her speech as a jumping-off point, Parton explores the four great hopes she urges us to embrace: dream more, learn more, care more, and be more. She culls examples of these values from her own life as illustrations, from growing up poor in the hills of eastern Tennessee to her experiences as the iconic performer she has become today.

Written by one of the cultural legends of our time, Dream More is a poignant and uplifting anthem for all who want to take charge of their lives and forge a future on their own terms.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Who among us can resist the inimitable country wisdom and wit of Dolly Parton?”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Part memoir, part self-help, Parton’s book shares her life philosophies and the guiding principles behind her Dollywood Foundation, which provides free books to children through the Imagination Library program…Parton’s style is folksy and winsomely charming…Parton remembers struggling through classes in a one-room schoolhouse as a child, only to later return to her hometown as a successful performer and provide students with scholarships. Parton goes on to outline the practices that made her a successful businesswoman…Fans will particularly enjoy ‘The Wit & Wisdom of the Dolly-Mama,’ which contains Dollyisms like ‘I’m just the girl next door, provided you live next door to an amusement park,’ and ‘Home is where I hang my hair.’”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Country music’s spunky doyenne presents an inspirational, feel-good stocking stuffer…Parton’s kooky, boobcentric sense of humor gels nicely with pages of song lyrics, anecdotes, and countrified witticisms. A pocket-sized pick-me-up for fans and dreamers.”
