Did Mary Lincoln really wear flannel pajamas? Why was Martha Washington's "dress" turned into a pincushion? How did Julia Grant's hat show support for the Confederacy? Did Edith Wilson really track mud onto the White House carpets? These are some of the stories (all true) that have been told about some of the First Ladies you may have forgotten about--or never knew. The stories are either factual, actual or "metaphorical" using an item of their clothing to propel the tale. You love their gowns at the Smithsonian; now you can love them better!
Garfields Train is a novel of the New Jersey Shore, when Long Branch was the Gilded Strand of the Gilded Age. The wealthiest families in the country built elaborate 30-room cottages along the seacoast, frequented the casinos and racetracks, and lived the good life. Then President James Garfield was shot by an assassin in 1881. He lingered in pain for three months, and was finally brought to Long Branch to die. The fictional Dunbar family interacts with a supporting cast of General Grant, Roscoe Conkling, James G. Blaine, Susan B. Anthony, and of course, the whole Garfield family, recreating the bygone era of Long Branchs proudest hours.
Offers biographical information on the American first ladies, from Martha Washington to Mamie Eisenhower, providing insight into their early lives, time in the White House, and lives after their husbands left office.
In this second volume, author Andrew Och continues his travels to "to nearly every city, town, village, home, school, church, birthplace, cemetery, train station, farm, plantation, library, museum, general store, town center and cottage" that relates to America's first ladies from Edith Roosevelt, wife of Theodore, to Melania Trump.
When it comes to qualities such as passion, enthusiasm, energy, and creativity, the majority of the American workforce could be described as "severely lacking." Too many people just go through the motions, viewing work as something they have to do rather than something they love to do. This translates into lackluster performance, lost opportunities, and a staggering loss of profits. So how does a team leader turn a business-as-usual team into a remarkable one? Remarkable! is an entertaining and enlightening business parable that has the power to turn any team around. Through the humorous and eye-opening story of Dusty, leaders will discover how to build a culture that inspires team members to bring the best of who they are to the table every day. Addressing the three dimensions of culture--values, beliefs, and behaviors--Remarkable! introduces readers to the Four Maxims of Value Creation: creativity, positivity, sustainability, and responsibility. It shows leaders the most effective ways to cultivate these qualities in their team members and how to craft a corporate culture where people can thrive.
Ladies: A Conjecture of Personalities is a book of voices. First Ladies between Martha Washington and Mamie Eisenhower tell their own stories -- or, to be more exact, whatever they want -- in their own words and in their own styles. Ladies: A Conjecture of Personalities crosses boundaries between fact, conjecture, and, most importantly, centuries. Through dialogue-boxes, the ladies talk to each other across eternity, where anything is possible. The modern First Ladies, from Mrs. Kennedy through Mrs. Clinton, participate in commentary. They talk to the reader and they talk amongst themselves. And they sympathize, empathize, and quarrel amongst themselves. They talk about their husbands, their children, the White House, and the times they lived in. And, of course, politics. It's chatty. It's catty. It's fun. It's informative. It's a must-read for anyone interested in history.
A classic work of American literature that has not stopped changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene, The Things They Carried is a ground-breaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. The Things They Carried depicts the men of Alpha Company: Jimmy Cross, Henry Dobbins, Rat Kiley, Mitchell Sanders, Norman Bowker, Kiowa, and the character Tim O’Brien, who has survived his tour in Vietnam to become a father and writer at the age of forty-three. Taught everywhere—from high school classrooms to graduate seminars in creative writing—it has become required reading for any American and continues to challenge readers in their perceptions of fact and fiction, war and peace, courage and fear and longing. The Things They Carried won France's prestigious Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize; it was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
