Andy & Don: The Making of a Friendship and a Classic American TV Show : Andy Griffith and Don Knotts first met on Broadway in the 1950s. When Andy moved to Hollywood to film a TV pilot for a comedy about a small-town sheriff, Don called to ask if Andy's sheriff could use a deputy. The friendship and comedy partnership between Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife ignited The Andy Griffith Show, elevating the folksy television sitcom into a timeless study of human friendship.

Andy and Don were fellow southerners, born into poverty and raised among ne'er-do-wells, bullies, and drunks. They grew up during the Depression, Andy on the wrong side of the tracks in North Carolina, Don in a threadbare West Virginia boardinghouse. Though their Mayberry partnership lasted only until 1965, the two remained best friends for life. Andy was with Don in 2006 on his deathbed.

Andy and Don captures the talent of these men - and the magic between them - at the height of their fame, as well as the struggles each faced in his personal life. Written by Don Knotts's brother-in-law and featuring extensive unpublished interviews with those closest to both men, this book is the definitive account of The Andy Griffith Show and the two men who captured America's heart as they rocked lazily on the front porch, meditating about the simple pleasure of a bottle of pop.
