Series/Author: Charles
$3.95

Hardcover Charles Kuralt's American Moments by Charles Kuralt Charles Kuralt was the real and true voice of America, a man often compared to Mark Twain, Will Rogers, John Steinbeck, and Ernie Pyle.Kuralt's last television and book project was a series of short television spots called \"An American Moment with Charles Kuralt\". They were syndicated to news stations around the country, beginning in January of 1997 and running through August of the same year. Organized by Kuralt's longtime friend and CBS News colleague, Peter Freundlich, into ten chapters ranging from American Emblems such as stone walls and cable cars to American Originals like buffalo wings, totem poles, and cowboy hats, these short stories tell us who we are and how we came to be. Through each American Moment -- which Kuralt defined as \"a small truth of the kind easily overlooked by people in a hurry\" -- we can glimpse pieces of the real America: the heart of the country that Kuralt knew and loved so well. Taken together, they remind us of something we may have known once but have forgotten in the headlong, frantic rush of daily life. Learn More

$6.95

Hardcover Old School: Life in the Sane Lane by Bill O'Reilly (Goodreads Author), Bruce Feirstein Old School is in session.... You have probably heard the term Old School, but what you might not know is that there is a concentrated effort to tear that school down. It’s a values thing. The anti–Old School forces believe the traditional way of looking at life is oppressive. Not inclusive. The Old School way may harbor microaggressions. Therefore, Old School philosophy must be diminished. Those crusading against Old School now have a name: Snowflakes. You may have seen them on cable TV whining about social injustice and income inequality. You may have heard them cheering Bernie Sanders as he suggested the government pay for almost everything. The Snowflake movement is proud and loud, and they don’t like Old School grads. So where are you in all this? Did you get up this morning knowing there are mountains to climb—and deciding how you are going to climb them? Do you show up on time? Do you still bend over to pick up a penny? If so, you’re Old School. Or did you wake up whining about safe spaces and trigger warnings? Do you feel marginalized by your college’s mascot? Do you look for something to get outraged about, every single day, so you can fire off a tweet defending your exquisitely precious sensibilities? Then you’re a Snowflake. So again, are you drifting frozen precipitation? Or do you matriculate at the Old School fountain of wisdom? This book will explain the looming confrontation so even the ladies on The View can understand it. Time to take a stand. Old School or Snowflake. Which will it be? Learn More

Hardcover Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever (Bill O'Reilly's Killing Series) by Bill O'Reilly (Goodreads Author), Martin Dugard A riveting historical narrative of the heart-stopping events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and the first work of history from mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased. In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington D.C., John Wilkes Booth—charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist—murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions—including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. Featuring some of history's most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller. ~ Learn More

Whos Looking Out For You
Series/Author: Bill
$6.50

Hardcover Who's Looking Out for You? by Bill O'Reilly (Goodreads Author) From the mega-bestselling author of The O'Reilly Factor and The No Spin Zone, a no-holds-barred expos? of the people and institutions who are letting Americans down - and what we should do about it. Bill O'Reilly is mad as hell - and he's not going to let you take it anymore. In his most powerful and personal book yet, this media powerhouse and unstoppable truth-teller takes on those individuals and institutions in American life who are failing in their duties - big-time. In his inimitable style, mixing wit, pugnacity, and plain common sense, O'Reilly kicks butt and takes (and also names) names - from crooked corporate weasels to venal politicians to lazy and/or politically correct bureaucrats to sexually predatory priests and the Church hierarchy that protects them to a media establishment rife with political bias and economically hooked on violence and smut. At the same time that he calls the famous and powerful to account, he dares to get personal, questioning just how much our closest friends, families, and lovers do look out for us, and delivering a powerful message about personal responsibility and self-reliance in an uncertain world. He forces us to ask just how much genuine altruism is left in a society that thrives on self-indulgence and ruthless competition. Who's Looking Out for You? is a book that boldly confronts our worst fears and biggest problems in a post-9/11, post-corporate-meltdown world. Its sage, candid advice on regaining control and trust in these troubled times will resonate with the millions of readers and viewers who have come to believe in Bill O'Reilly as the man who speaks for them.

Being George Washington
Series/Author: Glenn
$6.95

Hardcover - Great Being George Washington by Glenn Beck IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW GEORGE WASHINGTON; THINK AGAIN. This is the amazing true story of a real-life superhero who wore no cape and possessed no special powers—yet changed the world forever. It’s a story about a man whose life reads as if it were torn from the pages of an action novel: Bullet holes through his clothing. Horses shot out from under him. Unimaginable hardship. Disease. Heroism. Spies and double-agents. And; of course; the unmistakable hand of Divine Providence that guided it all. Being George Washington is a whole new way to look at history. You won’t simply read about the awful winter spent at Valley Forge—you’ll live it right alongside Washington. You’ll be on the boat with him crossing the Delaware; in the trenches with him at Yorktown; and standing next to him at the Constitutional Convention as a new republic is finally born. Through these stories you’ll not only learn our real history (and how it applies to today); you’ll also see how the media and others have distorted our view of it. It’s ironic that the best-known fact about George Washington—that he chopped down a cherry tree—is a complete lie. It’s even more ironic when you consider that a lie was thought necessary to prove he could not tell one. For all of his heroism and triumphs; Washington’s single greatest accomplishment was the man he created in the process: courageous and principled; fair and just; respectful to all. But he was also something else: flawed. It’s those flaws that should give us hope for today. After all; if Washington had been perfect; then there would be no way to build another one. That’s why this book is not just about being George Washington in 1776; it’s about the struggle to be him every single day of our lives. Understanding the way he turned himself from an uneducated farmer into the Indispensable (yet imperfect) Man; is the only way to build a new generation of George Washingtons that can take on the extraordinary challenges that America is once again facing.
