God blessed Joe Mallory with the ability to run at speeds that defied human capabilities. He used his gift of speed to represent the USA in the next Olympic games. While vacationing in Hawaii, a freelance reporter named Samantha Mitchell made Joe world-famous with her front-page Sports Illustrated story about his life and achievements. He soon received death threats with only two days left of the three-week Hawaiian vacation that made him wonder how he would get off the island alive to see his dreams come true.Cindy was injured, knocked unconscious, and hospitalized from a head-on car accident. Before she passed out, she observed the face of the other driver and saw a very peculiar look in his eyes that troubled her. She and her dad were later sued for millions of dollars. The other driver was reportedly in a coma with life-threatening injuries and wheeled into the courtroom confined to a modified wheelchair specifically designed for him. His injuries made no sense to her. Cindy noticed his medical team, periodically giving him injections. If he was in a coma, why would he be getting injections, she wondered. On one occasion, when she looked over at him lying sideways facing her, he opened only the closest eye to the wheelchair and looked at her to mouth the words "Help me." She nodded her head and watched him nod his before he closed his eye. His medical team was now holding a long needle, getting ready to give him another injection. The jury was ready to return with their verdict, which meant she was running out of time. She had to do something impulsive. She prayed as she rose from her chair and ran across the courtroom not realizing at the time God was about to make her dreams come true.

In this brilliant saga—the final volume of The Berrybender Narratives and an epic in its own right—Larry McMurtry lives up to his reputation for delivering novels with “wit, grace, and more than a hint of what might be called muscular nostalgia, fit together to create a panoramic portrait of the American West” (The New York Times Book Review). As this finale opens, Tasmin and her family are under irksome, though comfortable, arrest in Mexican Santa Fe. Her father, the eccentric Lord Berrybender, is planning to head for Texas with his whole family and his retainers, English, American, and Native American. Tasmin, who would once have followed her husband, Jim Snow, anywhere, is no longer even sure she likes him, or knows where to go to next. Neither does anyone else—even Captain Clark, of Lewis and Clark fame, is puzzled by the great changes sweeping over the West, replacing red men and buffalo with towns and farms. In the meantime, Jim Snow, accompanied by Kit Carson, journeys to New Orleans, where he meets up with a muscular black giant named Juppy, who turns out to be one of Lord Berrybender’s many illegitimate offspring, and in whose company they make their way back to Santa Fe. But even they are unable to prevent the Mexicans from carrying the Berrybender family on a long and terrible journey across the desert to Vera Cruz. Starving, dying of thirst, and in constant, bloody battle with slavers pursuing them, the Berrybenders finally make their way to civilization—if New Orleans of the time can be called that—where Jim Snow has to choose between Tasmin and the great American plains, on which he has lived all his life in freedom, and where, after all her adventures, Tasmin must finally decide where her future lies. With a cast of characters that includes almost every major real-life figure of the West, Folly and Glory is a novel that represents the culmination of a great and unique four-volume saga of the early days of the West; it is one of Larry McMurtry’s finest achievements.

Whether you know him as the first to produce cartoons in Technicolor, the mastermind behind the theme park Disneyland, or the founder of the largest entertainment conglomerate, Walt's story of creativity, perseverance in spite of obstacles, and achieving goals resonates and inspires as much today as it ever has. Author Pat Williams began studying the life and leadership example of Walt Disney as he struggled to build an NBA franchise, the Orlando Magic.

Through Walt Disney's leadership example, Pat found 7 key leadership traits that all great leaders must possess: Vision, Communication, People Skills, Character, Competence, Boldness, and A Serving Heart. Through never-before-heard Walt stories and pragmatic principles for exceeding business goals, you'll learn how to build those skills and implement them to be effective in any leadership arena.

The Alamo often conjures up images of rugged frontiersmen, the likes of Davy Crockett and James Bowie, shoring up the defenses of the fort against the forces of General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. These events did take place, but The Alamo was a small flashpoint in a wider struggle for control of a strategically vital region known as Texas. Seen as a bulwark against the French and British empires to the north, the newly independent nation of Mexico had to secure the territory or risk encroachment on its northern border. This compelling volume examines The Alamo within the wider context of the struggle for control of Texas. Chapters explain the events that led to the battle, provide a gripping description of the siege itself with detailed discussions of the primary figures involved, and describe the legacy of this lost battle to American politics and culture.
