"The must-have companion to Bill O'Reilly's historical docudrama series Legends and Lies: The Real West, a fascinating, eye-opening look at the truth behind the western legends we all think we know : How did Davy Crockett save President Jackson's life only to end up dying at the Alamo? Was the Lone Ranger based on a real lawman--and was he African American? What amazing detective work led to the capture of Black Bart, the "gentleman bandit" and one of the West's most famous stagecoach robbers? Did Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid really die in a hail of bullets in South America? Generations of Americans have grown up on TV shows, movies and books about these western icons. But what really happened in the Wild West? All the stories you think you know, and others that will astonish you, are here--some heroic, some brutal and bloody, all riveting. Included are the ten legends featured in Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies docuseries --from Kit Carson to Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickok to Doc Holliday-- accompanied by two bonus chapters on Daniel Boone and Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley. Frontier America was a place where instinct mattered more than education and courage was necessary for survival. It was a place where luck made a difference and legends were made. Heavily illustrated with spectacular artwork that further brings this history to life and told in a fast-paced, immersive narrative, Legends and Lies is an irresistible, adventure-packed ride back into one of the most storied era of our nation's rich history"--
Up till now : the autobiography by William Shatner( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After almost sixty years as an actor, William Shatner has become one of the most beloved entertainers in the world. And it seems as if Shatner is everywhere. It was the original Star Trek series, and later its films, that made him instantly recognizable, called by name--or at least by Captain Kirk's name--across the globe. But he neither began nor has ended his career with that role. From the start, he took his skills as an actor and put them to use wherever he could, straddling the classic world of the theater and the new world of television. And since then, he's gone on to star in numerous successful shows, such as T.J. Hooker, Rescue 911, and most recently Boston Legal. In this touching and funny autobiography, William Shatner reveals the man behind the unforgettable moments, and how he's become the worldwide star and experienced actor he is today.--From publisher description

Bill O'Reilly's Legends & Lies: The patriots by David Fisher( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American Revolution was not inevitable, nor was it a unanimous cause. It pitted neighbors against one another, as loyalists and colonial rebels faced off for their lives and futures. Through the remarkable lives of the first Americans, this book reveals the contentious arguments that turned friends into foes and the land into a war zone. From the riots over a child's murder that led to the Boston Massacre, to the Continental Army's first victory under George Washington's leadership, to the little-known Southern guerrilla campaign of "Swamp Fox" Francis Marion, to Benedict Arnold's audacious betrayal, David Fisher explores the amazing combination of resourcefulness, perseverance, strategy, and luck that resulted in the creation of a country that would go on to become the most powerful in the world. Despite the casualty-riddled victory of the Revolution, the ruthless fight for democracy wasn't over. Moving from the combat zone to Congress, it was a political battle as much as a physical one. With the patriots grappling to create a government, one for and by the people, the origin story of the United States of America was only starting to be written
Bill O'Reilly's legends & lies : the Civil War by David Fisher( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the birth of the Republican Party to the Confederacy's first convention, the Underground Railroad to the Emancipation Proclamation, the Battle of Gettysburg to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Civil War reveals the amazing and often little known stories behind the battle lines of America's bloodiest war and debunks the myths that surround its greatest figures, including Harriet Tubman, Abraham Lincoln, General Robert E. Lee, Frederick Douglass, Stonewall Jackson, John Singleton Mosby, Ulysses S. Grant, Jefferson Davis, John Wilkes Booth, William Tecumseh Sherman, and more. An epic struggle between the past and future, the Civil War sought to fulfill the promise that "all men are created equal." It freed an enslaved race, decimated a generation of young men, ushered in a new era of brutality in war, and created modern America. Featuring archival images, eyewitness accounts, and beautiful artwork that further brings the history to life, The Civil War is the action-packed and ultimate follow-up to the #1 bestsellers The Patriots and The Real West"--

U.S. Marshals : inside America's most storied law enforcement agency by Mike Earp( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike their counterparts in the police and the FBI, U.S. Marshals aren't responsible for investigating or prosecuting crimes. They pursue and arrest the most dangerous criminal offenders on U.S. soil, an extraordinarily hazardous job often involving gun battles and physical altercations. Earp takes us back to the service's early days, explaining its creation and its role in the border wars that helped make continental expansion possible. He brings to life the gunslingers and gunfights that have made the Marshals legend, and explores the service's role today integrating federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies in the hunt for the most notorious criminals, terrorists, drug lords, and gun runners. Setting his own experiences within the long history of the U.S. Marshals service, Earp offers a moving and illuminating tribute to the brave marshals who have dedicated their lives to keeping the nation safe

The accountant's story : inside the violent world of the Medellín cartel by Roberto Escobar Gaviria( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pablo Escobar and the Medellín drug cartel formed the greatest criminal empire of all time. At its peak, in the 1980s, Forbes pegged the Escobar fortune at a cool $6 billion. Pablo's older brother Roberto, the author of this book, says that actually the Escobars were worth far more than that. (He notes, for instance, that the family was trafficking so much cocaine that they spent $1,000 a week just on rubber bands to hold together their bundles of cash.) Here he offers far more than diverting contraband trivia, presenting us with an insider's view of a murderous enterprise that outflanked governments on several continents. One of the most astonishing true crime books of the decade.--From publisher description
The war magician by David Fisher( Book )

15 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in English and Korean and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jasper Maskelyne was a world famous magician and illusionist in the 1930s. When war broke out, he volunteered his services to the British Army and was sent to Eygpt where the desert war had just begun. He used his skills to save the vital port of Alexandria from German bombers and to 'hide' the Suez Canal from them. He invented all sorts of camouflage methods to make trucks look like tanks and vice versa. Working for military intelligence, he put on a stage show inside the Royal Palace in Cairo in order to locate an enemy spy's radio transmitter. On Malta he developed 'the world's first portable holes': fake bomb craters used to fool the Germans into thinking they had hit their targets. His war culminated in the brilliant deception plan that won the Battle of El Alamein: the creation of an entire dummy army in the middle of the desert
