Gari Carter was given her great-great-grandfather's journals from the Civil War era and spent years deciphering his handwriting and researching his life. These writings of Franklin Archibald Dick awakened Carter's deep respect and appreciation for the adversity he dealt with and the wisdom it offered her in dealing with her own journey. Her first book, Healing Myself, was written after her life-changing auto accident. She is a dynamic public speaker and lives in North Carolina.
In 1982, Gari Carter's old life abruptly ended. A headon car crash destroyed much of her face. Ahead were almost ten years of operations that gradually rebuilt her jaws, cheekbones, nose, and gums. Ahead lay months of helplessness, pain, anxiety, and depression. Ahead lay overwhelming fear of pain. But ahead lay much more.
Healing Myself is the story of one woman's successful battle to rise above pain and despair. But it's about more than pain. It's about the elation she felt as she gained control of her suffering. It's about the lessons she learned from hard experiencelessons in patience, love, and proper priorities.
Perhaps most astoundingly, it's about her discovery of a series of commerciallyproduced audio paincontrol tapes that changed her multiplehour operations from ordeals to be dreaded into challenges to be met calmly and confidentlywithout anesthetics!
The iconic anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation, with the former Confederates allowed to reintegrate into American society. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices, perhaps reaching into the highest ranks of the U.S. government, are not appeased.
In the midst of the patriotic celebrations in Washington D.C., John Wilkes Booth—charismatic ladies' man and impenitent racist—murders Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theatre. A furious manhunt ensues and Booth immediately becomes the country's most wanted fugitive. Lafayette C. Baker, a smart but shifty New York detective and former Union spy, unravels the string of clues leading to Booth, while federal forces track his accomplices. The thrilling chase ends in a fiery shootout and a series of court-ordered executions—including that of the first woman ever executed by the U.S. government, Mary Surratt. Featuring some of history's most remarkable figures, vivid detail, and page-turning action, Killing Lincoln is history that reads like a thriller.
