Michael chegou ao pódio, e Richard compreendeu o motivo de sua demora. Irmão esperou o momento em que os raios do sol vai iluminar a plataforma. Michael apareceu Admirando o olhar do todo envolto em luz.<br /><br />Seu cabelo grosso brilhou ao sol, assemelhando-se um halo. Michael era um baixo, robusto, e inchado além de seus anos. Acima do lábio superior antenas adornada. Por ocasião da celebração, ele estava usando um terno branco, sem corte, interceptado no cinto de ouro. Congeladas fixamente em uma plataforma no fluxo de luz solar, Michael como imagem de escultura de mármore caro irradiava fantasma radiância gelo. Naquele momento, ele se parecia com um baixo-relevo esculpido em um pedaço escuro.

<b><h2>“Absolutely the best source there is on the cattle trail.” Walter Prescott Webb</h2></b><br /><br />J. Marvin Hunter’s <em>The Trail Drivers of Texas</em> is a brilliant collection of first hand accounts of men and women who lived on the trail and range in the Old West. <br /><br />In total there are over two hundred different accounts from Texans in the nineteenth century. From the humorous to the deadly, the thrilling to the everyday, each of these stories are remarkably individual, depicting a Texas before the advent of the railroad.<br /><br />Hunter explained that “These pages sparkle with the lustre of deeds well done by a passing generation, and it is our purpose to keep bright that lustre, that it may not pale with the fleeting years.”<br /><br />Many of the major events and figures of Texan history are covered within this monumental work, from members of the Texas Rangers to old cowboys, from the gun slinging towns to travelling the Chisholm Trail.<br /><br />"For 60 years, <em>The Trail Drivers of Texas</em> has been considered the most monumental single source on the old-time Texas trail drives north to Kansas and beyond ... Because of its vast volume of raw material, expressed in the words of those who lived the life and rode the long miles, students of cattle industry history regard it with high respect, even awe." Elmer Kelton, <em>Dallas Morning News</em><br /><br />J. Marvin Hunter was an author, historian, journalist, and printer who founded the Frontier Times Museum in Bandera, Texas. His books include <em>Pioneer History of Bandera County: Seventy-five Years of Intrepid History</em>, <em>The Bloody Trail in Texas</em>, <em>Old Camp Verde, the Home of the Camels</em>, a reference to Jefferson Davis's 1850s camel experiment in the Southwest, <em>Cooking Recipes of the Pioneers</em>, and <em>Peregrinations of a Pioneer Printer</em>. He edited and compiled <em>The Trail Drivers of Texas</em> which was published in 1920. He died in 1957.

Young girl’s panties started to go missing; sexual assaults began to occur, and then female bodies were found! Soon this quiet town of Tweed, Ontario, was in panic. What's even more shocking was when an upstanding resident stood accused of the assaults. This was not just any man, but a pillar of the community; a decorated military pilot who had flown Canadian Forces VIP aircraft for dignitaries such as the Queen of England, Prince Philip, the Governor General and Prime Minister of Canada.<br /> <br />This is the story of serial killer Russell Williams, the elite pilot of Canada’s Air Force One, and the innocent victims he murdered. Unlike other serial killers, Williams seemed very unaffected about his crimes and leading two different lives. <br /> <br />Alan R. Warren describes the secret life including the abductions, rape and murders that were unleashed on an unsuspecting community. Included are letters written to the victims by Williams and descriptions of the assaults and rapes as seen on videos and photos taken by Williams during the attacks.<br />
