From the rural mountains of Yabucoa in Puerto Rico to the bustling streets of New York City, author Emma Gomez shares her life story in this inspiring memoir. Born in 1934 as one of ten children and then graduating from college in 1980, Gomez narrates how she overcame the challenges of being a Hispanic woman in a world that wasn't quite ready to accept her and her high aspirations. Through many stories and anecdotes, this memoir follows Gomez from her early days in Puerto Rico, to moving to the United States, to her marriage and its issues, to raising two children, and to her work on labor issues affecting women. A true story of facing trials and the satisfaction of meeting one's goals, her recollections provide a testament to one woman's dedication to improving herself and paving the way for other women to do the same. Praise for Emma Gomez: A Courageous Woman Displays "True Grit" True grit--that's exactly what you get when you read this exciting true story of this self-made woman, Emma Gomez. Within the short time that I have known her, she has unselfishly given of herself to all without prejudice, seeking to give rather than to receive. And that's the point of the story you are about to read. Now she gives to you, the readers, just as she has given to all who have crossed her path. ..." --James G. Nolan Jr.

Frank McLintock was a leading player of his generation and is acclaimed as one of Arsenal's greatest captains. After transferring from Leicester, in 1970 he led Arsenal to a famous victory in the Fairs Cup and followed this up with even greater glory a year later, winning an historic league and FA Cup double. He left Arsenal in 1973 after being controversially dropped, and enjoyed four successful years at QPR. He retired from playing in 1977, to make an ill-conceived and hasty move into management. Following this difficult period he entered the often shady world of agents, and faced perhaps his worst moment in the game, becoming involved in the infamous bung scandal over Teddy Sherringham's transfer from Forest to Spurs. His is a captivating football story spanning 45 years during which he achieved fabulous success and faced shattering lows, all told with enthusiasm, humour, honesty and intense passion.

Undaunted by the objections of her family, sects of Jewish culture, and the back-door politics of powerful governments, Golda’s DNA demands pragmatic decisions that reveal her destiny and the unwavering conviction that all people can live in peace and with dignity.

From High Noon to Unforgiven, the "A" Western represents the pinnacle of Western filmmaking. More intellectual, ambitious, and time-consuming than the readily produced "B" or serial Westerns, these films rely on hundreds of talented artists. This comprehensive reference work provides biographies and Western filmographies for nearly 1,000 men and women who have contributed to at least three "A" Westerns. These contributors are arranged by their role in film production. Cinematographers, composers, actors, actresses, and directors receive complete biographical treatment; writers whose work was used in at least two Westerns are also featured. An appendix lists well-known actors who have appeared in either one or two "A" Westerns, as specified.

I have completed this manuscript Just Remember This, or as American Pop Singers 1900-1950+, about music before the 1950s in America. It perhaps offers knowledge and insights not previously found in other musical reference books. I have moreover been working on this book very meticulously over the past twelve-plus years. It started as a bit of fun and gradually became serious as I began to listen along with the vocalists of popular music, of the era before 1950, essentially just before the dawn of rock and roll. If you can call it that! Indeed genre and labeling of American music started here, and then from everywhere. While the old adage of always starting from somewhere could be noted in every century, the 1900s had produced the technology. Understanding the necessity, more so, finds a curiosity on the part of a general public hungry for entertainment, despite 6 day work weeks, World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II.
