Self-portrait by Gene Tierney( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and held by 1,072 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'I had no trouble playing any kind of a role, ' Gene Tierney writes. 'My problems began when I had to be myself.' In Hollywood's golden age, everyone knew the starring roles Miss Tierney played in her 36 films: the unwashed Ellie May in 'Tobacco Road, ' the demure Martha in 'Heaven can Wait;' her appearances opposite Clark Gable, Tyrone Power, Rex Harrison, Humphrey Bogart, Henry Fonda, and, best remmebered of all, as the haunting -- murdered? --beauty of the portrait painting in 'Laura, ' one of the most televised films ever. Her rollercoaster marriage to fashion designer Oleg Cassini and her globe-trotting affair with Prince Aly Khan were public property. Word of her dates with billionaire Howard huges and a lighthearted ex - naval officer named Jack Kennedy circulated over the years. But the inside story of her greatest, most heart-wrenching role -- herself -- has never been told until right now. Outwardly living every woman's fantasies, she became an emotional invalid. Her marriage collapsed. Her romances failed. Her father became a cruel disappointment. Her first daughter was born deaf, blind, hopelessly retarded, At the crest of her career, Gene Tierny attempted suicide, suffered a nervous breakdown, and spent the next seven years in and out of sanatoriums. With candor, humor, and sometimes with anger, but never with self-pity or self-indulgence, she tells of her meteoric career, her long, slow, uneven recovery from 'the black tunnel of mental illness'; the struggles with her doctors, her treatments, her escape from confinement, her depressions, her mad impulses, herself, always herself ... and finally on to a happy remarriage and tranquillity."

Behind the scenes : in which the author talks about Ronald and Nancy Reagan ... and himself by Michael K Deaver( Book )

10 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As both a historical document and a personal memoir, Behind the Scenes is one of the most intimate and revealing portraits of President Reagan's long pursuit of the presidency... The book analyzes the unique attributes and personal style that were turned to Reagan's advantage. Deaver was a confident of Nancy and Ronald Reagan for more than twenty years and was a member of the Reagan team during its ascendance. As a member of the Deaver/Baker/Meese troika, Deaver's involvement in key historical events was extensive... Finally, Behind the Scenes tells of one man's battle with his personal demons and the tantalizing and overwhelming seduction of power. His decline, like that of many in Washington, was quick, relentless, and public - a fall that was exacerbated - but not caused - by his secret alcoholism. No history of this era would be complete without the information found in this book, while important as a volume of history, also tells a personal and involving story." -- Amazon.com

Mystic sails, Texas trails by Mickey Herskowitz( )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This four-generation saga, written with Mickey Herskowitz, begins with Richard Grimes, who became a sea captain at the astonishing age of 21, and made the first of his fortunes carrying passengers from Mystic Seaport, Connecticut, to the West Indies. In 1821, he heard of the land grants being developed in the territory west of New Orleans and the port of Matagorda. It was the final year of Spanish rule, and the Captain began to sail and trade in the waters of what was now known as Mexican Texas, in the heart of the colony granted to Moses Austin. By 1836, he was sailing 2,400 miles to bring settlers, troops, gunpowder, whiskey and provisions to aid Texas in its struggle to free itself from Mexico. After the war, as the new republic was coming to life, the Captain pursued maritime trading along the Texas and Louisiana coasts. When his son William Bradford Grimes joined him after years of schooling in the north, he made he gradual transition from life at sea to land and cattle baron. After the Civil War, Bradford established the legendary WBG ranch and led the first trail drives from Texas to Kansas along the Chisholm Trail. Bradford eventually passed on the WBG Ranch to his children to move to Kansas City, where he became hugely successful in banking and the mercantile business
