Buffalo Bill Cody: The Man Behind the Legend

Robert A. Carter

Buffalo Bill Cody: The Man Behind the Legend

"An excellent book based on exhaustive research and written with fresh insight. It is a spellbinding accomplishment and brings both the man and his era to life... It is an extraordinary achievement." - Arizona Daily Star. "Carter presents this astounding tale in a very balanced fashion, providing both the nineteenth-century rationale and his repug-nance at acts today considered shocking... Through Carter's writing, the heroic and ultimately sad life of a remarkable human being makes a deep impact." - Richmond Times Dispatch. "A comprehensive, sharply rendered life of showman William 'Buffalo Bill' Cody pries realities away from legend... A splendid portrait of Cody's life and times, at once poignant, boisterous, and disturbing." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review). "There's a large audience for American, and particularly Western, history, and those readers will not want to miss this genial account." ...

Victor Villasenor

Burro Genius : A Memoir

Book Description Standing at the podium, Victor Villasenor looked at the group of educators amassed before him, and his mind flooded with childhood memories of humiliation and abuse at the hands of his teachers. He became enraged. With a pounding heart, he began to speak of these incidents. When he was through, to his great disbelief he received a standing ovation. Many in the audience could not contain their own tears. So begins the passionate, touching memoir of Victor Villasenor. Highly gifted and imaginative as a child, Villasenor coped with an untreated learning disability (he was finally diagnosed, at the age of forty-four, with extreme dyslexia) and the frustration of growing up Latino in an English-only American school in the 1940s. Despite teachers who beat him because he could not speak English, Villasenor clung to his dream of one day becoming a writer. He is now considered one of the premier writers of our time.

Terrell Owens

Catch This! : Going Deep with the NFL's Sharpest Weapon

Book Description In a sport full of players who are larger than life, Terrell Owens towers above the crowd . It isn't just that he holds the NFL record for catches in a single game (twenty) or that he's the most feared wide receiver in the game. It's also his penchant for unique self-expression -- spiking the ball on the midfield Texas lone star in front of a hostile Dallas Cowboy crowd, pulling a Sharpie from his sock to sign a game ball after a touchdown, and dancing with a cheerleader's pom-poms after another TD. Never politically correct and always controversial and colorful on and off the field, Terrell Owens has transformed himself into "TO," the outrageous gridiron personality who has rocked the entire NFL and the sports landscape. But Owens is more than touchdowns, dancing, and celebrations. In this wickedly insightful book, he's full of sharp-eyed observations on the contentious, demanding, insane phenomenon that is pro football. In Catch This! ...

Leonie Frieda

Catherine de Medici : Renaissance Queen of France

Book Description Poisoner, besotted mother, despot, necromancer, engineer of a massacre: the stain on the name of Catherine de Medici is centuries old. In this critically hailed biography, Leonie Frieda reclaims the story of this unjustly maligned queen of France to reveal a skilled ruler battling against extraordinary political and personal odds. Orphaned in infancy, imprisoned in childhood, heiress to an ancient name and vast fortune, Catherine de Medici was brought up in Florence, a city dominated by her ruling family. At age fourteen, the Italian-born young woman became a French princess in a magnificent alliance arranged by her uncle the pope to Henry, son of King Francis I of France. She suffered cruelly as her new husband became bewitchedby the superbly elegant Diane de Poitiers. Henry's influential and lifelong mistress wisely sent her lover to sleep with Catherine, and after an agonizingly childless decade when she saw popular resentment build against her, she...

Celebrity Tantrums! : The Official Dirt

Book DescriptionThe scandals, cat fights, temper tantrums, and felonies of more than 100 celebrities are revealed in this chronicle of the most notorious faux pas of the rich and famous. All kinds of unflattering provocations and outrageous reactions aredetailed, including what pushed Diff'rent Strokes star Gary Coleman over the edge and inspired him to slug a fan more than twice his size; how Mia Farrow found out boyfriend Woody Allen was sleeping with her adopted daughter and what she did to exact revenge; and what single sentence caused Elton John to nearly ruin his lifelong friendship with an equally famous singing star. Humorous and opinionated, this book examines cases of star-struck fits of passion that scuttled movie and music projects, destroyed relationships, and changed the course of entertainment history. Movie stars, singers, politicians, sports sensations, fashion models, and other wealthy and privileged famous faces are exposed, including Marlon Brando, Naomi Campbell,...

Cesar Chavez : A Biography (Greenwood Biographies)

Book DescriptionCesar Chavez, the labor organizer and founder of the United Farm Workers of America, was, perhaps, an unlikely hero. In this biography, his early life is shown to be fairly typical for a boy in a close-knit family of Mexican Americans whoworked the land in Arizona and California and endured hardship and discrimination. His story reveals the underside of the American Dream, and his later successes in helping farm workers and building a union to represent them are a testament to something extraordinary in a seemingly ordinary man.

Alessandro Barbero

Charlemagne: Father of a Continent

Book DescriptionThe most important study of Charlemagne in a generation, this biography by distinguished medievalist Alessandro Barbero illuminates both the man and the world in which he lived. Charles the Great-Charlemagne-reigned from a.d. 768 to a.d. 814. At the time if his death, his empire stretched across Europe to include Bavaria, Saxony, parts of Spain, and Italy. With a remarkable grasp of detail and a sweeping knowledge of Carolingian institutions and economy, Barbero not only brings Charlemagne to life with accounts of his physical appearance, tastes and habits, family life, and ideas and actions but also conveys what it meant to be king of the Franks and, later, emperor. He recounts how Charlemagne ruled his empire, kept justice, and waged wars. He vividly describes the nature of everyday life at that time, how the economy functioned, and how Christians perceived their religion. Barbero's absorbing analysis of how concepts of slavery and freedom were subtly altered as...

Peter Ackroyd

Chaucer : Ackroyd's Brief Lives (Ackroyd Brief Lives)

Book DescriptionIn the first in a new series of brief biographies, bestselling author Peter Ackroyd brilliantly evokes the medieval world of England and provides an incomparable introduction to the great poet’s works. Geoffrey Chaucer, who died in 1400, lived a surprisingly eventful life. He served with the Duke of Clarence and with Edward III, and in 1359 was taken prisoner in France and ransomed. Through his wife, Philippa, he gained the patronage of John of Gaunt, which helped him carve out a career at Court. His posts included Controller of Customs at the Port of London, Knight of the Shire for Kent, and King's Forester. He went on numerous adventurous diplomatic missions to France and Italy. Yet he was also indicted for rape, sued for debt, and captured in battle. He began to write in the 1360s, and is now known as the father of English poetry. His Troilus and Criseyde is the first example of modern English literature, and his masterpiece, The Canterbury...

Barry Minkow

Cleaning Up : One Man's Redemptive Journey Through the Seductive World of Corporate Crime

Book DescriptionBefore he was even old enough to drink, he had bank accounts, a Ferrari, a mansion, a multi-million dollar corporation, and a desperate little secret . . . it was all a lie . Most of us can't imagine life getting much worse than it got for Barry Minkow, the one-time Wall Street wiz kid who catapulted his company to stardom and success only to see it exposed as a $300-million fraud. Most of us can't imagine spending more than seven years in federal prison and coming out owing victims $26 million. Most of us can't imagine our careers changing from FBI target to FBI trainer, from CEO to senior pastor, from con man to con catcher. Or can we? We've all slipped up. We've all failed. Cleaning Up is Barry Minkow's comeback story-a powerful a tale of redemption and inspiration, of second chances and setting things right. More than a decade from defrauding investors, today, as cofounder of the Fraud Discovery Institute, he's uncovered over a billion...
