Bush on 'Decision Points' bookplate adhered on front free endpaper in very good condition in very good dust jacket that is mylar protected. Dust jacket and book have some bumped corners, light discoloration and shelf wear. Includes a wrinkled with wear and tear laid in event card "28th Annual Spencer Sturat CEO Dinner" held last January 11, 2011. In this candid and gripping account, President George W. Bush describes the critical decisions that shaped his presidency and personal life. 9.5"x6.5", 497 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. George W. Bush served as president of the United States during eight of the most consequential years in American history. The decisions that reached his desk impacted people around the world and defined the times in which we live. Decision Points brings readers inside the Texas governor's mansion on the night of the 2000 election, aboard Air Force One during the harrowing hours after the attacks of September 11, 2001, into the Situation Room moments before the start of the war in Iraq, and behind the scenes at the White House for many other historic presidential decisions. For the first time, we learn President Bush's perspective and insights on: *His decision to quit drinking and the journey that led him to his Christian faith; *The selection of the vice president, secretary of defense, secretary of state, Supreme Court justices, and other key officials; *His relationships with his wife, daughters, and parents, including heartfelt letters between the president and his father on the eve of the Iraq War; *His administration's counterterrorism programs, including the CIA's enhanced interrogations and the Terrorist Surveillance Program; *Why the worst moment of the presidency was hearing accusations that race played a role in the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina, and a critical assessment of what he would have done differently during the crisis; *His deep concern that Iraq could turn into a defeat costlier than Vietnam, and how he decided to defy public opinion by ordering the troop surge; *His legislative achievements, including tax cuts and reforming education and Medicare, as well as his setbacks, including Social Security and immigration reform; *The relationships he forged with other world leaders, including an honest assessment of those he did and didn' trust; *hy the failure to bring Osama bin Laden to justice ranks as his biggest disappointment and why his success in denying the terrorists their fondest wish - attacking America again - is among his proudest achievements. A groundbreaking new brand of presidential memoir, Decision Points will captivate supporters, surprise critics, and change perspectives on eight remarkable years in American history - and on the man at the center of events. Since leaving office, President George W. Bush has led the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. The center includes an active policy institute working to advance initiatives in the fields of education reform, global health, economic growth, and human freedom, with a special emphasis on promoting social entrepreneurship and creating opportunities for women around the world. It will also house an official government archive and a state-of-the-art museum that will open in 2013.. Signed by Author. 4th Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Green Street Kid: Growing Up by the Chacon Creek and Other Memories

By Ricardo D. Palacios

Bloomington, Indiana: Archway Publishing, 2013. AO2 - A hardcover book SIGNED and inscribed by author to previous owner on the half-title page in very good condition in very good dust jacket that is mylar protected. Dust jacket and book have some bumped corners, light discoloration and shelf wear. Green Street Kid is more than the story of one man's life. It is a portrait of the life and culture of South Texas, where the majority of the population is Hispanic and conflicts sometimes develop between Hispanics and Anglos. It is a story of falling down and rising up again. 9.5"x6.5", 194 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. Growing up on Green Street in Laredo, Texas, Ricardo Palacios made the wilderness his playground. The woods, the nearby creek, and the vastness of Chacon Creek Canyon transported him and his young friends away from the strife and poverty of the barrio and into the splendor of nature. Looking back on his life, Palacios reflects on seventy years of memories - from his birth through his days at the all-male St. Joseph's Academy Catholic school, capturing the powerful camaraderie he shared with his classmates and his experiences playing high school football. He next takes a hard look at his college years, during which he flunked out twice before finally making the commitment to graduate with honors and obtain a law degree. Palacios places his life experiences under a microscope, sharing periods of heavy alcohol use, very stressful years as a rookie attorney, and tales from the trenches about the pitfalls, successes, and failures of his legal practice. He describes his twenty-eight-year marriage, pondering how and why it failed, and tells of wonderful years raising his children on a cattle ranch, with plenty of opportunities for hunting and camping. ..

Hick from the Sticks: Texas Farm Life in the Thirties

By Herschel Hill

College Station, Texas: Virtualbookworm Publishing, 2010. I5 - A paperback book SIGNED by author with "In memory of the Greatest Generation." written on the title page in very good condition that has some bumped corners, wrinkling and crease, some stains on the page edges, light discoloration and shelf wear. Farmers across the South struggled to survive during the Great Depression years of the thirties. Rural folks worked small family farms with manual implements and horse-drawn equipment to eke out a living for large families. Children toiled beside parents to provide a roof over their heads, clothing on their backs, and food for their stomachs. People on the farm endured a primitive existence without electricity, running water, indoor bathrooms, automobiles, air conditioning, telephones, and other conveniences we take for granted. Children attended tiny rural elementary schools and rode buses great distances on narrow dirt roads to attend high schools. Author Herschel Hill is a product of that thirties culture, and he describes his adolescent years. He shares his experiences on a small family farm, in a one-room one-teacher school, in a small country church, and in a culture rife with racial discrimination. He also discusses folks' sacrifices during World War II and the impact of that brutal bloody war on rural life in America. 9"x6", 148 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. . Signed by Author. Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
