New York Times bestelling author Fern Michaels took readers on an emotionally rewarding journey when she created the Colemans and Thorntons, the unforgettable American families of her TEXAS and VEGAS series. Now, the next generation of Colemans and Thorntons are back in an exciting new trilogy that combines the heady thrills of Kentucky horse racing with strong, accomplished women who fight for their dreams. Kentucky Rich Josh Coleman left behind the unfinished family business when he took to his deathbed at SunStar, the thoroughbred horse farm he'd built from nothing. But now that unfinished business cannot be ignored--because his long-lost daughter has come back to settle an old score. Nealy Coleman no longer resembles the teenaged waif who slipped away the middle of the night with her illegitimate child, Emmie, thirty years ago. This Nealy is rich, sophisticated, and renowned in the racing world--a woman to be reckoned with. Nealy's shocking return will change everything for her two brothers, Pyne and Rhy; for her daughter, Emmie; and for all the Thorntons and Colemans, who have strong connections with SunStar. And when the truth about her father and a family's troubled past is revealed, Nealy will find herself faced with the greatest challenges of her life--challenges that will test her courage in unexpected ways and reveal what is truly important. In Kentucky Rich, Fern Michaels surpasses herself once again, with a novel as rich and lush as the Kentucky bluegrass country itself. . .a story of stunning power that ushers in an extraordinary new trilogy.

To most people, the word "Kentucky" is likely to inspire thoughts of Derby Day, burley tobacco fields, feuding Appalachian families, coal mines, and Colonel Sanders' famous fried chicken.

Klotter and Freda C. Klotter introduce readers to a captivating story that spans 12,000 years of Kentucky lives, from Native Americans to astronauts. All facets of Kentucky history are explored -- geography, government, social structure, culture, education, and the economy -- recounting unique historic events such as the deadly frontier wars, the assassination of a governor, and the birth of Bluegrass music. The book features profiles of famous Kentuckians such as Daniel Boone, Abraham Lincoln, Loretta Lynn, and Muhammad Ali, as well as ordinary citizens. A joint collaboration of the state historian of Kentucky and an experienced educator, A Concise History of Kentucky is an authoritative, readable story that will educate and entertain newcomers to Kentucky history and those who simply want to learn more about the Commonwealth.

Kentucky is most commonly associated with horses, tobacco fields, bourbon, and coal mines. There is much more to the state, though, than stories of feuding families and Colonel Sanders’ famous fried chicken. Kentucky has a rich and often compelling history, and James C. Klotter and Freda C. Klotter introduce readers to an exciting story that spans 12,000 years, looking at the lives of Kentuckians from Native Americans to astronauts. The Klotters examine all aspects of the state’s history—its geography, government, social life, cultural achievements, education, and economy. A Concise History of Kentucky recounts the events of the deadly frontier wars of the state’s early history, the divisive Civil War, and the shocking assassination of a governor in 1900. The book tells of Kentucky’s leaders from Daniel Boone and Henry Clay to Abraham Lincoln, Mary Breckinridge, and Muhammad Ali. The authors also highlight the lives of Kentuckians, both famous and ordinary, to give a voice to history. The Klotters explore Kentuckians’ accomplishments in government, medicine, politics, and the arts. They describe the writing and music that flowered across the state, and they profile the individuals who worked to secure equal rights for women and African Americans. The book explains what it was like to work in the coal mines and explains the daily routine on a nineteenth-century farm. The authors bring Kentucky’s story to the twenty-first century and talk about the state’s modern economy, where auto manufacturing jobs are replacing traditional agricultural work. A collaboration of the state historian and an experienced educator, A Concise History of Kentucky is the best single resource for Kentuckians new and old who want to learn more about the past, present, and future of the Bluegrass State.

ÔGlobalization, it seems, has propelled the worldÕs uber-wealthy to new heights of power and money, with tremendous repercussions for the other 99.9 percent of us. At a time when neoliberalism has propelled the world into a new Gilded Age, with rising inequality everywhere, an aggressive class war being waged by the wealthy, and billionaires inserting themselves bluntly into the political arena, understanding the behavior and spatiality of the super-rich has acquired a pressing urgency. This volume offers a richly textured suite of essays concerning how the super-rich have restructured local places, transforming landscapes as varied as London and Kentucky, Ireland and St. Barts, as well as domains as varied as art, thoroughbred horses, and housing.Õ Ð Barney Warf, University of Kansas, US ÔThe worldÕs super-rich, made up of just 11 million people, have access to about US$42.0 trillion of wealth. These are people who each have a spare million of ÒliquidÓ wealth. Their wealth is roughly equal to two thirds of global GDP. They own most of everything. As the editor of this books states Ò. . . library shelves and the pages of journals remain largely devoid of geographical work on the super-rich Ð a startling lacuna this volume sets out to fillÓ. The super-rich now own most of the planet. During the last year their share fell slightly. Times may be changing. Now is the time to begin to study the superÐrich in detail, especially if you are worried about where all the wealth has gone.Õ Ð Danny Dorling, University of Sheffield, UK This timely and path-breaking book brings together a group of distinguished and emerging international scholars to critically consider the geographical implications of the worldÕs super-rich, a privileged yet remarkably overlooked group. Emerging from this unique collection is an enlightening picture of the influence of the super-rich over a diverse range of affairs, extending from the shape of urban and rural landscapes to the future of art history. By concentrating on those at the apex of the economic pyramid, this book provides valuable insights to the institutions, practices and cultural values of our society, as well as allowing us a more comprehensive view of the consequences of global capitalism. Presenting case studies from across the globe Ð from Singapore to St Barts, London to Lexington Ð the spatial and cultural span of the book is wide-ranging and diverse. This truly unique book will prove a fascinating read for academics, researchers and students in the fields of geography, regional and urban studies, sociology, political science and development studies.
