Muhammad Ali
More Than a Hero More Than a Hero by Muhammad Ali, Hana Ali
Muhammad Ali's Life Lessons Presented Through His Daughter's Eyes: "The world knows my father as Muhammad Ali, n Cassius Clay, a man with one of the most recognized faces on the planet. I know him as Daddy." Hana Ali
Redemption Song: Muhammad Ali and the Spirit of the Sixties Redemption Song: Muhammad Ali and the Spirit of the Sixties by Mike Marqusee
An eye-opening excursion through the politics and culture of the 1960s. This portrait of the Mohammad Ali provides a springboard for an investigation of the themes of black representation, popular culture, the Black Atlantic, and the wool and warp of exuberant individualism and mass protest that came to typify the 1960s. Marqusee's story is populated by figures such as Paul Robeson and Jackie Robinson, Joe Louis and Kwame Nkrumah. It includes fresh examinations of Ali's friend, the singer Sam Cooke, who was a secret supporter of the Nation, and of Bob Dylan, whose retreat from protest to introspection provides an illuminating counterpoint to Ali's own journey. Marqusee also recreates in detail Ali's associations with Martin Luther King and above all with Malcolm X, a friendship that was torn apart by the paranoia and ruthlessness of Elijah Muhammad.
Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times by Thomas Hauser
The man is Muhammad Ali, the most recognizable person on earth. For half a century, he has walked among us, his face as familiar as that of a close friend. Somewhere in time, he captured a blend of mayhem and magic that carried him deep into the collective psyche of us all. The world didn't just see or hear Ali; it felt him. And if he hasn't always been part of the landscape, it somehow seems that way now.
The Fight The Fight by Norman Mailer
The "fight" is the 1975 world heavyweight championship bout in Zare between then reigning king of the ring Muhammad Ali and up-and-coming George Foreman. Mailer relays the events of the actual fight and includes the observations of George Plimpton, Hunter S. Thompson, and others.
Muhammad Ali: Ringside Muhammad Ali: Ringside by John Miller (Editor)
Throughout his remarkable career, Ali's courage, skill, ego, and beauty made him one of the most colorful and well-known of all public figures; someone who truly had to be seen to be believed. Using fight posters, tickets, rare memorabilia and classic photographs, Ringside brings Ali's extraordinary life into focus.
Daniel Boone
The Life of Daniel Boone The Life of Daniel Boone by Lyman Copeland Draper, Ted Franklin Belue (Editor)
Draper, the first secretary of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, collected more than 500 volumes of material on the famed frontiersman Daniel Boone. His biography of Boone remained unfinished for 100 years until Ted Franklin Belue, a widely read scholar of early Americana, added his authoritative editing. This long-awaited work is filled with little-known information on Boone and his family, long hunters, the Shawnee, the fur trade, and frontier life in general.
Daniel Boone: The Life and Legend of an American Pioneer Daniel Boone: The Life and Legend of an American Pioneer by John Mack Faragher
Award-winning historian John Mack Faragher portrays America's famous frontier hero who scouted the trans-Appalachian west for settlement before any other English-speaking American, surveyed and helped build the Wilderness Road, and led the settlers' struggle against the Shawnee defenders of Kentucky. Yet the complex range of Boone's accomplishments has inspired conflicting accounts of his life and character. Daniel Boone is an intriguing subject whose legends are enveloped in paradox. History portrays Boone as an Indian-fighting frontiersman, yet he objected to that reputation, proclaiming his belief in the Quaker tolerance of his forebears. He was a devoted family man, but his lengthy hunting and trapping expeditions encouraged the popular depiction of him as a misanthropic man of the woods. And although he served as a frontier leader of the American Revolution, his fellow officers suspected him of loyalty to the crown and treasonous sympathy for the Indians.
Abraham Lincoln
The Life and Writings of Abraham Lincoln The Life and Writings of Abraham Lincoln by Abraham Lincoln, Philip Van Doren Stern (Editor)
Abraham Lincoln, the greatest of all American presidents left us a vast legacy of writings, some of which are among the most famous in our history. Lincoln was a marvelous writer - from the humblest letter to his great speeches, including his inaugural addresses, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the Gettysburg Address. In 1940, the prolific author and historian Philip Van Doren Stern produced this volume as a guide to Lincoln's life through his writings.
Lincoln on Lincoln Lincoln on Lincoln by Abraham Lincoln, Paul M. Zall (Editor)
Lincoln's writing about himself offers a window into the soul and mind of America's greatest president. His words reveal an emotional evolution typically submerged in political biographies. They help to explain, to a degree not previously understood, the great mystery of his life: the process through which he matured from laborer to store clerk to country lawyer to president.
Lincoln of Kentucky Lincoln of Kentucky by Lowell Hayes Harrison
In the nineteenth century, thousands of Kentuckians crossed over the Ohio River and went to work and live in Indiana and Illinois. Young Abraham Lincoln and his family joined this migration, but it was Kentucky -- the state of the future president's birth -- that shaped his personality and continued to affect his life at every stage.
