8 The Shepherd of the Hills Wright, Harold Bell
Branson, Missouri, U.S.A. Shepherd of the Hills Historical Society 1987 0970260903 / 9780970260901 Hard Copy Near Fine No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Signed by Actors
The Shepherd of the Hills Historical Society, Branson, Missouri, 1987. Inscribed on the front end page and front fly leaf by 17 actors who were part of The Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Theatre in Branson, Missouri in 2003. Book is in Near Fine condition. From the publisher: "Originally published in 1907, 'The Shepherd of the Hills' is Harold Bell Wright's most famous work . . . . Wright spins a tale of universal truths across the years to the modern-day reader. His Eden in the Ozarks has a bountiful share of life's enchantments, but is not without its serpents. While Wright rejoices in the triumphs, grace, and dignity of his characters, he has not naively created a pastoral fantasyland where the pure at heart are spared life's struggles and pains. Refusing to yield to the oft-indulged temptation of painting for the reader the simple life of country innocents, Wright forthrightly shows the passions and the life-and-death struggles that go on even in the fairest of environments that man invades." Gift wrap and gift card available.The shepherd, an elderly, mysterious, learned man, escapes the buzzing restlessness of the city to live in the backwoods neighborhood of Mutton Hollow in the Ozark hills. There he encounters Jim Lane, Grant Matthews, Sammy, Young Matt, and other residents of the village, and gradually learns to find a peace about the losses he has borne and has yet to bear. Through the shepherd and those around him, Wright assembles here a gentle and utterly masterful commentary on strength and weakness, failure and success, tranquility and turmoil, and punishment and absolution. This tale of life in the Ozarks continues to draw thousands of devotees to outdoor performances in Branson, Missouri, where visitors can also see the cabin where the real Old Matt and Aunt Mollie lived." The book, originally published in 1907, was made into a movie of the same name in 1941 with a cast including John Wayne, Betty Field, Sammy Lane, Harry Carey, Beulah Bondi, Marjorie Main, and Ward Bond.

11 Wake Up, I'm Fat! Manheim, Camryn - FIRST EDITION SIGNED BY AUTHOR
New York, New York, U.S.A. Broadway Books 1999 0767903625 / 9780767903622 Stated 1st Edition/1st Printing Hard Copy Near Fine Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Signed by Author
289 pages. Signed by author on title page, "Love Camryn Manheim". Book is in Near Fine condition. Dust jacket is in Very Good condition - some small chips on edges. From the publisher: "...Camryn Manheim, Emmy Award-winning costar of The Practice, chronicles her journey from a self-hating, 'overweight' teenager, who desperately wanted to fit in, to a self-loving, fat activist who is proud to be a misfit. Wake Up, I'm Fat! shares her intelligent, candid, poignant, and often hilarious stories of being fat in a society obsessed with being thin. Camryn takes us from her days as a motorcycle-riding hippie in Santa Cruz to her enrollment at New York University's prestigious school of drama--where Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner broke the unspoken theater rules of size by casting her in the role of the ingenue--and finally to Hollywood, where she dispelled the fallacy that large women can't be portrayed as sensual, sophisticated, and confident. Camryn's endearing honesty, sass, and razor-sharp wit will appeal to any reader who has ever felt like an outcast or yearned to make peace with their body."
