              The explosive true saga of the legendary figure Daniel Boone and the bloody struggle for America's frontier by two bestselling authors at the height of their writing power--Bob Drury and Tom Clavin. It is the mid-eighteenth century, and in the 13 colonies founded by Great Britain..., anxious colonists desperate to conquer and settle North America's First Frontier beyond the Appalachian Mountains commence a series of bloody battles. These violent conflicts are waged against the Native American tribes whose lands they covet, the French, and finally against the mother country itself in an American Revolution destined to reverberate around the world. This is the setting of Blood and Treasure, and the guide to this epic narrative is America's first and arguably greatest pathfinder, Daniel Boone--not the coonskin cap-wearing caricature of popular culture but the flesh-and-blood frontiersman and Revolutionary War hero whose explorations into the forested frontier beyond the great mountains would become the stuff of legend. Now, thanks to painstaking research by two award-winning authors, the story of the brutal birth of the United States is told through the eyes of both the ordinary and larger-than-life men and women, white and red, who witnessed it. This fast-paced and fiery narrative, fueled by contemporary diaries and journals, newspaper reports, and eyewitness accounts, is a stirring chronicle of the conflict over America's First Frontier that places the reader at the center of this remarkable epoch and its gripping tales of courage and sacrifice.

              Chronicling the unforgettable and improbable triumph of Jack Nicklaus in the 1986 Masters, this celebration recounts how the tarnished "Golden Bear," with his eldest son Jackie as his caddy, won the most prestigious golf tournament for the sixth time at the astonishing age of 46.... Though he was not a favorite to win-ranked 160th on the PGA Tour money list and six years without a win at a major championship-Nicklaus found redemption in competition and reasserted his golf legacy with an inspiring win that many still regard as the most exciting Masters ever. Hanging on for the first three rounds of the tournament, Nicklaus charged ahead in the final round, securing a heart-pounding and history-making victory. This book is full of details about the crowning achievement of Nicklaus's career, the Masters championship itself, and profiles of some of the finest golf players in the sport at the peak of their careers, such as Seve Ballesteros, Tom Kite, and Greg Norman.
