Abstract: 
A classic American success story with a twist Like J. P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, and Andrew Carnegie, Marshall Field was one of the overlords of triumphant capitalism in the Gilded Age of the late nineteenth century. However, his phenomenal wealth and generous philanthropy masked a disastrous personal life. Deserted by his wife and alienated from his children, the founder of the Field dynasty left a legacy of immense wealth and misery to match. The Marshall Fields recounts the classic tale of Field s spectacular success as well as the tragic story of a man who, while making millions by knowing what women wanted, had no inkling of his own wife s emotional needs. This revealing account follows the next five generations of the Field family, concentrating on the most important and controversial figures in each generation. What emerges is a startling saga of money, madness, and mystery. From the son who may have been shot by a chorus girl to the great-great grandson who used his millions to create Hollywood fantasies, Field s descendants have caromed wildly between rebellion and folly. Their story offers a new and penetrating take on wealth, success, and the nightmare that often accompanies the American dream.

Abstract: 
"The Waukegan Historical Society was founded in 1968 to help keep the city's history alive. Through numerous programs and presentations the society has provided a record of many of the contributors to Waukegan's growth and importance. Publication of a photo record seems like a natural continuation of this mission. The memorable images collected in "Waukegan, Illinois" are of those people and events that made the city great, and were selected from the society's archives. We hope that many memories may be sparked as one wanders through our collective past."

Abstract: 
"Kate McDermott has choices to make: Should she stick with her teaching job or return to her family's neglected Las Vegas business? Meanwhile, Kate must juggle two loves: ex-husband Keith and her new business partner, CJ Clemons. "Things unravel when Kate learns that she is pregnant, then discovers Keith has hidden a relationship with his new partner, too. What road will she take? After all, she divorced him following a fling with another partner. "The past is turned on its ear at warp speed. Kate's parents reluctantly keep her hidden revelation and Kate herself is shocked to find out that Aunt Didi has kept a powerful secret for 30 long years. "As with all tales, this one involves twists, turns and plenty of surprises - not the least of which reveals the unknown ally Keith has acquired when he tries to reconnect with Kate."
