In this brilliant biography, Jon Meacham, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author, chronicles the life of George Herbert Walker Bush. Drawing on President Bush’s personal diaries, on the diaries of his wife, Barbara, and on extraordinary access to the forty-first president and his family, Meacham paints an intimate and surprising portrait of an intensely private man who led the nation through tumultuous times. From the Oval Office to Camp David, from his study in the private quarters of the White House to Air Force One, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the first Gulf War to the end of Communism, Destiny and Power charts the thoughts, decisions, and emotions of a modern president who may have been the last of his kind. This is the human story of a man who was, like the nation he led, at once noble and flawed.
The River Thief is a rich, action- adventure about guilt, grace, and receiving life as a gift. Diz (Joel Courtney) is a reckless teenage drifter living life on the run along the Snake River. Abandoned by his parents as a child, he looks out for himself, takes whatever he wants and runs. Jaded and determined to answer to no one, Diz lives a life of thievery and never looks back. Things change when Diz floats into a small town where he is confronted by an unflappable old man named Marty (Tommy Cash) and his guarded granddaughter, Selah who try to help him. When Diz robs an enormous pile of cash from a local drug-dealing crazy, he becomes the target of two vicious killers. With more money than he knows what to do with, and criminals at his heels, Diz is horrified to realize he has put the only people he’s ever cared about in imminent danger. Jon spoke with Tommy Cash about his role in this movie and about his more famous brother Johnny Cash.
