For much of the mid-twentieth-century, Amon G. Carter Sr. was the man who invented the cowboy at least the larger-than-life Texas version that captured the imagination of the public, presidents, movie stars, and moguls. Carter donned his cowboy persona to build Fort Worth, from the Star-Telegram up, and much of the rest of West Texas. Jerry Flemmons brings to life the mythic huckster and newspaper giant who ushered the likes of Gary Cooper, Charles Lindbergh, Will Rogers, and Ike through the back door of his Fort Worth mansion and feted them at his Shady Oak Farm with rodeos and parties.

An international bestseller, this is the extraordinary and moving memoir of a woman who learns that her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the brutal Nazi commandant depicted in Schindler's List. When Jennifer Teege, a German-Nigerian woman, happened to pluck a library book from the shelf, she had no idea that her life would be irrevocably altered. Recognising photos of her mother and grandmother in the book, she discovers a horrifying fact: Her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant chillingly depicted by Ralph Fiennes in Schindler's List - a man known and reviled the world over. Although raised in an orphanage and eventually adopted, Teege had some contact with her biological mother and grandmother as a child. Yet neither revealed that Teege's grandfather was the Nazi "butcher of Plaszow," executed for crimes against humanity in 1946. The more Teege reads about Amon Goeth, the more certain she becomes: If her grandfather had met her-a black woman-he would have killed her. Teege's discovery sends her, at age 38, into a severe depression-and on a quest to unearth and fully comprehend her family's haunted history. Her research takes her to Krakow - to the sites of the Jewish ghetto her grandfather 'cleared' in 1943 and the Plaszow concentration camp he then commanded - and back to Israel, where she herself once attended college, learned fluent Hebrew, and formed lasting friendships. Teege struggles to reconnect with her estranged mother Monika, and to accept that her beloved grandmother once lived in luxury as Amon Goeth's mistress at Plaszow. Teege's story is co-written by award-winning journalist Nikola Sellmair, who also contributes a second, interwoven narrative that draws on original interviews with Teege's family and friends and adds historical context. Ultimately, Teege's resolute search for the truth leads her, step by step, to the possibility of her own liberation.

"Amon G. Carter (1879-1955) is one of the legendary men of Texas history. Born in a log cabin, he was self-made, becoming Fort Worth's leading citizen and champion. He developed an interest in the art of Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell through his friendship with Will Rogers. Carter's will provided for the establishment of a museum in Fort Worth devoted to the art of the American West. While the museum holds the most significant collection anywhere of works by Remington and Russell and is a pioneer in the field of western studies, it has evolved into one of the great museums of American art as a whole, focusing on artists working on successive frontiers, aesthetic as well as geographic. Its photography collection alone has grown to nearly one-quarter of a million objects." "The museum, designed by noted architect Philip Johnson, opened to the public in 1961. On the occasion of its fortieth anniversary, a substantially expanded building, also designed by Mr. Johnson, was inaugurated. This volume relates the museum's history and presents color and duotone illustrations of 125 of its masterworks dating from 1822 to 1998 (paintings, sculpture, prints, watercolors, pastels, drawings, and photographs), with an essay about each and a biography of each artist. It includes a number of landmark works recently added to the collection and unveiled here for the first time: paintings by John Singer Sargent, Stuart Davis, and Marsden Hartley; sculpture by Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson; a daguerreotype by Southworth and Hawes; and photographs by Alfred Stieglitz, David Smith, Robert Adams, and Linda Connor."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

THE PROPHET OF AMON – Book Summary In ancient Egypt circa 1500 B.C. - the era when the beautiful and noble Queen Hatshepsut rose to power to become the first great female leader in recorded history - a mysterious man ascended from the masses to speak His Word. His appearance on earth coincided with two major planetary events which forever changed Man’s history; phenomena that is well-documented in modern university textbooks across the globe. But was this man truly “The Prophet of Amon”… or perhaps the Almighty himself? Or was he a fraud and sham… a delusional, mortal man who thought of himself as a grandiose being with a preordained mission on earth to save the masses from a path of degradation and enslavement? This was the quandary facing Her Highness, the eminent Queen Hatshepsut, as well as the entire populace of the Egyptian Empire, now in its height of glory, power and grandeur. Based on fact and exhaustive historical research, Bjorn Street’s second historical novel takes dead aim at the very foundation of recorded history, and shakes the dust from the musty annals used by past scholars. Controversial and hard-hitting, the heated debate continues: “How dare Bjorn Street expose the truth of the Ancients?” “How dare he challenge the history taught in the stodgy texts at the universities?” “How dare he address the Alien Connection in Ancient Egypt?” Set against a backdrop of epic adventure, romance, and passion mixed in with a touch of humor, “THE PROPHET OF AMON” delves deeper into the spiritual and paranormal activity that prevailed during the Eighteenth Dynasty of the New Kingdom - Hatshepsut’s era. The book shakes the rafters and at last uncovers the truth about the love that transcends all. In “THE PROPHET OF AMON”, the ancient secrets are finally laid bare and exposed for all to see!

For La3amon, or Lawman (both forms are used), a parish priest living on the Welsh March c.1200, the criteria of language, race and territory all provided ways of defining the nation state, which is why his "Brut" commands a diverse readership to-day. The range of view-points in this book reflects the breadth and complexity of La3amon s own vision of the way his world is moulded by past conquests and racial tensions. The "Brut" is an open-ended narrative of Britain, its peoples, and its place-names as they changed under new rulers, and tells, for the first time in English, the rise and fall of Arthur, highlighting his role in the unfolding history of Britain. Beginning with its legendary founder, Brutus, the story is imagined anew, and although it concludes with an Anglo-Saxon kingdom, La3amon s closing words remind us that changes will come: " i-wuroe et iwuroe: i-wuroe Godes wille. Amen." This book offers detailed discussion and new perspectives. Its contributors explore aspects of behaviour and attitudes, personal and national identity and governance, language, metre, and the reception of La3amon s Brut in later times. Comparisons are made with Latin writings and with French, Welsh, Spanish and Icelandic, placing La3amon firmly within a European network of readers and redactors. The book will interest those working on medieval chronicles, as well as specialists in medieval law, custom, English language and literature, and comparative literature."
