Biographies, Lyrics, and America

Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son by Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez
In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters--and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different--they tell stories spanning more than fifty years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.

Honky Tonk Girl: My Life in Lyrics by Loretta Lynn
Loretta Lynn is one of the most beloved country music stars of all time. A pioneer for women in music, she was the first woman to be named Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association, and she continues to play to packed houses across the country. Now, for the first time, this "Honky Tonk Girl" collects her lyrics and in her own words tells the stories that inspired her most popular songs.

Robert Kagan, New York Times bestselling author and one of the country's most influential strategic thinkers, paints a vivid, alarming picture of what the world might look like if the United States were truly to let its influence wane.
