Finding who left a body in the second largest canyon in the United States leads to discovering more than a murder. Scott travels much of the Texas Panhandle following one lead after another. Along the way he meets Amanda Chisholm, park ranger, who is not only efficient and competent to help solve the case but a good companion. True to the Texas Ranger reputation, Scott is a one-man army equipped and adept at handling dangerous situations but with a sense of his own humanity to understand that there is always more to the story than you see on the surface.

Tall Texas Teen Tales: Confidential Misadventures of a poor Redneck

As a poor kid growing up, it was a challenge to have fun and not cost much, if anything. This book is specifically designed to let everybody know that fun doesn’t have a price tag on it if an imagination and a warped sense of humor is part of the equation. Anybody can have a ton of fun, and make lifelong memories without getting into too much trouble. O.K. some of these stories are stretched to the borders of reality, but……………..so what? Put yourself in the 60′s and remember some of the stuff you pulled. As we go through the elementary school years, then junior high and high school, the fun gets more sophisticated. This will not be done though without having the “goofy and stupid” element ever present. If the warped sense of humor offends you in anyway, please accept this apology, and consider the source. The magic of the 1960′s along with a small West Texas group of kids is an experience. Please consider the times compared to today’s technology, and society. Back then, parents were to be loved, respected and feared, Nowadays, nobody knows the difference from beating a kid, and spanking a kid. What a shame. Also, there is a section about some of the cars back then. the 50′s and 60′s was the absolute pinnacle of power and beautiful design. Without the 60′s, the muscle cars of the 70′s would not have been born. Without the 60′s, our music of the 70′s and future decades would not have the roots to grow. Hippies, draft dodgers, moon walks, and the whole culture of youth changed drastically then. Teens came out of their controlled environment and grew in many directions. Some good, some not so good. many of the top performers were over-dosing on drugs. But, somehow, we made it through the 60′s no worse for the wear. On the lighter side of growing up, you can now enjoy this era. Either by reading about it first hand, or bringing your own memories and comparing them. Either way, it will be fun, a lot of fun. GET READY TO LAUGH!!!

Lady Bird: A Biography of Mrs. Johnson

A revealing biography of Lady Bird Johnson with startling new insights into her marriage to Lyndon Baines Johnson and her unexpectedly strong impact on his presidency.
Long obscured by her husband’s shadow, Claudia “Lady Bird” Johnson emerges in this first comprehensive biography as a figure of surprising influence and the centering force for LBJ, a man who suffered from extreme mood swings and desperately needed someone to help control his darker impulses.
Expertly researched and written, Lady Bird draws from rare conversations with the former First Lady and from interviews with key members of Johnson’s inner circle of friends, family, and advisers. With chapters such as “Motherless Child,” “A Ten-Week Affair,” and “LBJ’s Midlife Crisis,” Lady Bird sheds new light on Mrs. Johnson’s childhood, on her amazing acumen as a businesswoman, and on the central role she played in her husband’s life and political career. A vital link to the Kennedys during LBJ’s uneasy tenure as vice president and a voice of conscience on civil rights, Lady Bird is portrayed here as a political force, strikingly different from the somewhat minor figure depicted in previous works on LBJ. Especially fascinating today, in light of the enormous attention now focused on the private lives of our leaders, are the personal details about her marriage to a man whose extramarital affairs were widely discussed.
In this intimate portrait, Russell shows us the private Lady Bird — not only a passionate conservationist but a remarkable woman who greatly influenced her husband, his administration, and the country.After three years of cooperation with author Jan Jarboe Russell, Lady Bird Johnson ended her participation in this biography when she got a look at an essay Russell published about LBJ’s infidelities in 1997. Russell paints a fascinating portrait of Johnson–a far tougher and shrewder woman than the dutiful image she presented as first lady in the 1960s–but she also unsparingly depicts LBJ as a mighty poor husband, something his intensely loyal spouse could never countenance. When she met Lyndon Johnson in 1934, friends couldn’t imagine what smart, rich, 21-year-old Lady Bird (a nickname acquired in childhood) saw in a crude, impoverished young politician whose ego far outstripped his achievements. But she was used to overbearing men–her father was one–and the pragmatic young woman walked into marriage with her eyes wide open. She supported LBJ unquestioningly, not just emotionally but with the income from her business dealings, and quietly relished the exciting life into which he swept her. While making clear her distaste for aspects of the Johnsons’ marital bargain, Russell nonetheless offers a nuanced account of a complex relationship in which Lady Bird played a more forceful, equal role than many realized. This revisionist biography has purpose and bite. –Wendy Smith A revealing biography of Lady Bird Johnson with startling new insights into her marriage to Lyndon Baines Johnson and her unexpectedly strong impact on his presidency.

Lyndon B. Johnson: The American Presidents Series: The 36th President, 1963-1969

The towering figure who sought to transform America into a “Great Society” but whose ambitions and presidency collapsed in the tragedy of the Vietnam War

Few figures in American history are as compelling and complex as Lyndon Baines Johnson, who established himself as the master of the U.S. Senate in the 1950s and succeeded John F. Kennedy in the White House after Kennedy’s assassination on November 22, 1963.

Charles Peters, a keen observer of Washington politics for more than five decades, tells the story of Johnson’s presidency as the tale of an immensely talented politician driven by ambition and desire. As part of the Kennedy-Johnson administration from 1961 to 1968, Peters knew key players, including Johnson’s aides, giving him inside knowledge of the legislative wizardry that led to historic triumphs like the Voting Rights Act and the personal insecurities that led to the tragedy of Vietnam.

Peters’s experiences have given him unique insight into the poisonous rivalry between Johnson and Robert F. Kennedy, showing how their misunderstanding of each other exacerbated Johnson’s self-doubt and led him into the morass of Vietnam, which crippled his presidency and finally drove this larger-than-life man from the office that was his lifelong ambition.
