The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell

Born with ocular albinism, small-town eye doctor Sam Hill must finally face a past tragedy that caused him to turn his back on his friends, his hometown, and the life he'd always known--a journey that makes him realize what truly matters.

From #1 Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni. Sam Hill always saw the world through different eyes. Born with red pupils, he was called "Devil Boy" by his classmates; "God's will" is what his mother called his ocular albinism. Her words were of little comfort, but Sam persevered, buoyed by his mother's devout faith, his father's practical wisdom, and his two other misfit friends. Sam believed it was God who sent Ernie Cantwell, the only African American kid in his class, to be the friend he so desperately needed. And that it was God's idea for Mickie Kennedy to storm into Our Lady of Mercy like a tornado, uprooting every rule Sam had been taught about boys and girls. Forty years later, Sam, a small-town eye doctor, is no longer certain anything was by design--especially not the tragedy that caused him to turn his back on his friends, his hometown, and the life he'd always known. Running from the pain, eyes closed, served little purpose. Now, as he looks back on his life, Sam embarks on a journey that will take him halfway around the world. This time, his eyes are wide open--bringing into clear view what changed him, defined him, and made him so afraid, until he can finally see what truly matters.

“What Citizen Kane was to movie lovers in 1941, The Wild Bunch was to cineastes in 1969,” critic Michael Sragow wrote in the New Yorker. “Its adrenaline rush of revelations seemed to explode the parameters of the screen.” If They Move . . . Kill ‘Em! is the first major biography of David Samuel Peckinpah. Written by the film critic and historian David Weddle, this fascinating account does critical justice to an important body of cinema as it spins the tale of Peckinpah’s dramatic, overcharged life and the turbulent times through which he moved. Sam Peckinpah was born into a clan of lumberjacks, cattle ranchers, and frontier lawyers. After a hitch with the Marines, he made his way to Hollywood, where he worked on a string of low-budget features. In 1955 he began writing scripts for Gunsmoke; in less than a year he was one of the hottest writers in television, with two classic series, The Rifleman and The Westerner, to his credit. From there he went on to direct a phenomenal series of features, including Ride the High Country, Straw Dogs, The Getaway, Pat Garrett and the Billy the Kid, and The Wild Bunch. Peckinpah was both a hopeless romantic and a grim nihilist, a filmmaker who defined his era as much as he was shaped by it. Rising to prominence in the social and political upheaval of the late sixties and early seventies, Peckinpah and his generation of directors—Stanley Kubrick, Arthur Penn, Robert Altman—broke with convention and turned the traditional genres of Western, science fiction, war, and detective movies inside out. No other era in Hollywood has matched it for sheer energy, audacity, and originality, no one cut a wider path through that time than Sam Peckinpah.

Golden Memories of My Life with Ruth and Sam offers insight into the kind of training into manhood; which sadly today, due to liberalism, is lacking in many lives of the unfortunate. Both of my grandparents were of the old school, pioneer spirit. They taught me to have respect for those who earn my respect by their quality of character. Also to earn my own self respect, due to my placing value upon the qualities of character I desire to possess. Self reliance is missing in the lives of those voting with an attitude of "give me;" and self respect gets thrown out of the window by those lacking in character. Worse yet, many today vote for politicians which are characters, rather than demanding they HAVE character. As the result, many people in America have been ignorantly flushing America down the toilet of history's once great nations. How very blessed I was to have the upbringing I received. This book contains not only the story of two extraordinary people. It offers a very good guide for parents of today, who desire to see their children grow into respectable men and women.

The Son of Sam

In this book, learn about this twisted example of a human being. David Berkowitz is more famously known as the Son of Sam, but this is a bit of a misnomer.

When people like Berkowitz go off the deep end and cross the bounds of normal human behavior, we just can't help but notice. In this book, learn about this twisted example of a human being. David Berkowitz is more famously known as the Son of Sam, but this is a bit of a misnomer. Berkowitz never called himself the Son of Sam: that was actually the name he gave to the demon that supposedly inhabited his next-door neighbor Sam Carr's dog. And if you were to go to Berkowitz's prison cell today and ask him about it, he would be filled with revulsion at the thought of being associated with it in any way. Of course, very few of us are going to argue semantics with a convicted serial killer, even though Berkowitz claims to have turned over a new leaf in the decades since his infamous murder spree. Having joined the messianic group Jews for Jesus, he says he's now a born-again Christian full of remorse for what he did. But the question still remains: What brought David Berkowitz to Satan's door in the first place? How did he become one of the most insidious serial killers the world has ever known? Here in this book, we will explore all of the twists and turns that led to the Son of Sam killings. Scroll back up and order your copy today!

The second volume of Gary Scharnhorst’s three-volume biography chronicles the life of Samuel Langhorne Clemens between his move with his family from Buffalo to Elmira (and then Hartford) in spring 1871 and their departure from Hartford for Europe in mid-1891. During this time he wrote and published some of his best-known works, including Roughing It, The Gilded Age, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Tramp Abroad, The Prince and the Pauper, Life on the Mississippi,Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. Significant events include his trips to England (1872–73) and Bermuda (1877); the controversy over his Whittier Birthday Speech in December 1877; his 1878–79 Wanderjahr on the continent; his 1882 tour of the Mississippi valley; his 1884–85 reading tour with George Washington Cable; his relationships with his publishers (Elisha Bliss, James R. Osgood, Andrew Chatto, and Charles L. Webster); the death of his son, Langdon, and the births and childhoods of his daughters Susy, Clara, and Jean; as well as the several lawsuits and personal feuds in which he was involved. During these years, too, Clemens expressed his views on racial and gender equality and turned to political mugwumpery; supported the presidential campaigns of Grover Cleveland; advocated for labor rights, international copyright, and revolution in Russia; founded his own publishing firm; and befriended former president Ulysses S. Grant, supervising the publication of Grant’s Memoirs. The Life of Mark Twain is the first multi-volume biography of Samuel Clemens to appear in more than a century and has already been hailed as the definitive Twain biography.
