The Lawman White Lightning

The Lawman  White Lightning

The big man owned this town—well, most of it, at least—but that could change
like lightning if the marshals linked him to the moonshine sold ... More likely
snuffed out by a faster gun one day, or cut down by a coward while his back was

The pedal meets the metal in Rolling Thunder Stock Car Racing--the thrilling series from Kent Wright and Don Keith that traces the history of stock car racing from the dusty dirt tracks of East Tennessee to the multi-million-dollar, high-tech venues of today. "You know how it feels...the power of the motors vibrating in your chest, stunning your ears, your heart pumping in your throat, the grit of spent tire rubber in your mouth. You know how it feels from the grandstand? Just imagine how it feels to the ole boy behind the wheel of one of those monsters. Just imagine!" It's the mid-1950s, and Elvis is King. Jodell Bob Lee has been raised up in his grandfather's moonshine business. But the boy dreams of something much bigger than clawing out a living on a dirt farm and outrunning federal revenuers. He dreams of racing stock cars. It only takes a few races before Jodell is hooked, and before long he and his mechanic cousin, Joe Baker, and best friend, Bubba Baxter, are facing the like of Junior Johnson, Ned Jarrett, and Lee Petty. His motto: always finish first, no matter what. The explosion of stock car racing as the number one spectator sport in America roars to life in White Lightning, the pedal-to-the-metal story of Jodell Lee's triumphant rise to fame and fortune. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

In this history of the stock car racing circuit known as NASCAR, Daniel S. Pierce offers a revealing new look at the sport from its postwar beginnings on Daytona Beach and Piedmont dirt tracks through the early 1970s, when the sport spread beyond its southern roots and gained national recognition. Real NASCAR not only confirms the popular notion of NASCAR's origins in bootlegging, but also establishes beyond a doubt the close ties between organized racing and the illegal liquor industry, a story that readers will find both fascinating and controversial.

In a homespun vernacular all her own, Shirley Brantley narrates this true tale of struggle and triumph. Her debut novel, No Other Help I Know, is set in the early sixties in the rural south. It centers on a family who is looking up and reaching out and holding on to the only thing that sustains them, their faith in God and themselves. Deeply rooted in the African American tradition, the message transcends cultural and racial divides with a universal truth. For every high, there is a low, and for every mountain top there is a valley experience. We are always in pursuit of our higher selves. Largely autobiographical, the story begins with Jeane Brockton en route to her hometown of Pendelton, South Carolina. During this sentimental journey, the scenes along the countryside cause intense memories to emerge, evoking a telling of her childhood that lends itself to the heart of traditional fiction.

American Indian stories have fascinated the world for all the right reasons: vigor, depth, subtlety, brightness. In the 1960s a brilliant renaissance began. Out of it came such gifted writers of fiction as N. Scott Momaday, James Welch, Leslie Marmon Silko, Gerald Vizenor, Simon Ortiz, Louise Erdrich, and Michael Dorris. In bringing them together, The Lightning Within celebrates some of the best work being done today in the novel and short story.

Written with the passion of a fan and knowledge of a cricketer, Mid-Wicket Tales: From Trumper to Tendulkar is for all genuine lovers of cricket from every cricketing nation. It celebrates cricket in all its hues and brings alive the rich history, romance and technical nuances of the game, where diligent research and analysis is blended with rare and interesting anecdotes. Even as the essays reflect the authors’ passion for the game, there is a perspective, balance and tolerant objectivity right through the book. Thus, if they lavish praise on Rahul Dravid for his batting or the wondrous all-round skills of Garry Sobers or the incomparable slip catching of Bobby Simpson, they also admire the less successful test cricketers, for there are just a few thousand test players in 137 years of international cricket. It is the sort of book one can reach out and spend 30 minutes on any number of occasions, just like meeting old friends.
