six RBIs; in fact, for the first time in seven seasons, he had failed to hit above .300

The story of Mickey Mantle's magnificent 1956 season Mickey Mantle was the ideal batter for the atomic age, capable of hitting a baseball harder and farther than any other player in history. He was also the perfect idol for postwar America, a wholesome hero from the heartland. In A Season in the Sun, acclaimed historians Randy Roberts and Johnny Smith recount the defining moment of Mantle's legendary career: 1956, when he overcame a host of injuries and critics to become the most celebrated athlete of his time. Taking us from the action on the diamond to Mantle's off-the-field exploits, Roberts and Smith depict Mantle not as an ideal role model or a bitter alcoholic, but a complex man whose faults were smoothed over by sportswriters eager to keep the truth about sports heroes at bay. An incisive portrait of an American icon, A Season in the Sun is an essential work for baseball fans and anyone interested in the 1950s.

The late 1970s were Britain's years of strife and the good life. They saw inflation, riots, the peak of trade union power - and also the birth of home computers, the rise of the ready meal and the triumph of a Grantham grocer's daughter who would change everything. Dominic Sandbrook re-creates this extraordinary period in all its chaos and contradiction, revealing it as a turning point in our recent history, where, in everything from families and schools to punk and Doctor Who, the future of the nation was being decided. 'A brilliant historian.' A. N. Wilson, Spectator 'Magnificent . . . If you lived through the late Seventies - or, for that matter, even if you didn't - don't miss this book.' Mail on Sunday 'Entertaining, engaging, masterful, a joy . . . as a storyteller, Sandbrook is superb.' Sunday Telegraph 'Sandbrook has rummaged deep into the cultural life of the era to remind us how rich it was, from Bowie to Dennis Potter, Martin Amis to William Golding.' The Times 'While Sandbrook punctures some of our favourite myths . . . what makes this book such a pleasure is the sheer, unashamed nostalgia it evokes.' Daily Telegraph 'Compulsively readable . . . Sandbrook is right to argue that the 1970s was the moment when our century arrived.' Guardian

Seasons in the Sun is the memoir of a college student/athlete in the mid-1970's. Bill Hauser played quarterback at Ohio's Wittenberg University, one of the top small-college football teams in America, and for one of the most successful coaches in the game. This book takes the reader through the ups and downs of competition and the life-lessons learned from that experience. But it is not all about football. The author's enjoyment of music of the period is woven throughout the book with popular songs of the time serving as chapter titles. If you remember the 1970's — the music, the events of the time and the college experience — you should enjoy this book. If you are a fan of college football, particularly small-college football, you likely will enjoy the intimate look at what the game was like in the 70s. Younger readers might also find the contrast in student life today and back in the 70s interesting and amusing. And the lessons learned and training received on the gridiron are as relevant in the present as they were back then.

Author: LEIGH CLARKE
Publisher: Trafford Publishing
Part I of this book is a repeat of Land Above and Part II continues the saga. In arriving to the Carolinas in the late 1700s, the McLean family worked hard, raised family, and thanked their fortune in finding a good life in a new land. Benjamin, knowing the pain of loss in his earlier life in Northern Ireland, regained love and wealth and became blessed with a large extended family life. When his son, Joseph and family, were feared lost at sea, the pain came flowing back; surely he could not lose this important part of himself. (Perhaps as before someone else can write better than I for the jacket of these books).
