John Ford's masterpiece The Searchers (1956) was rated fifth greatest film of all time in Sight and Sound's most recent poll of critics. Its influence on many of America's most distinguished contemporary filmmakers, among them Martin Scorsese, Paul Schrader, and John Milius, is enormous. John Wayne's portrait of the vengeful Confederate Ethan Edwards gives the film a truly epic dimension, as his long and lonely journey into the dark heart of America. Edward Buscombe provides a detailed commentary on all aspects of the film, and makes full use of material in the John Ford archive at Indiana University, including Ford's own memos and the original script, which differs in vital respects from the film he made.

New York Times Bestseller Named one of the best books of the year by: Parade The Guardian Kirkus Library Journal The true story behind the classic Western The Searchers by Pulitzer Prize-wining writer Glenn Frankel that the New York Times calls "A vivid, revelatory account of John Ford's 1956 masterpiece." In 1836 in East Texas, nine-year-old Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped by Comanches. She was raised by the tribe and eventually became the wife of a warrior. Twenty-four years after her capture, she was reclaimed by the U.S. cavalry and Texas Rangers and restored to her white family, to die in misery and obscurity. Cynthia Ann's story has been told and re-told over generations to become a foundational American tale. The myth gave rise to operas and one-act plays, and in the 1950s to a novel by Alan LeMay, which would be adapted into one of Hollywood's most legendary films, The Searchers, "The Biggest, Roughest, Toughest... and Most Beautiful Picture Ever Made!" directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne. Glenn Frankel, beginning in Hollywood and then returning to the origins of the story, creates a rich and nuanced anatomy of a timeless film and a quintessentially American myth. The dominant story that has emerged departs dramatically from documented history: it is of the inevitable triumph of white civilization, underpinned by anxiety about the sullying of white women by "savages." What makes John Ford's film so powerful, and so important, Frankel argues, is that it both upholds that myth and undermines it, baring the ambiguities surrounding race, sexuality, and violence in the settling of the West and the making of America.

At war's end in the Pacific, the fate of a thousand missing Australian airmen hung in the balance. Headed by tenacious Squadron Leader Keith Rundle, the RAAF's search and recovery party covered countless thousands of kilometres by air, by sea and on foot. In their quest to bring home the stories - and sometimes also the remains - of downed aircrew, the searchers frequently traversed steep and hazardous terrain, even clinging precariously to cliff-faces to investigate crash sites. In the jungle, crocodiles and snakes were not their only enemies - isolated pockets of armed Japanese soldiers remained at large. Many of the stories are told here for the first time- heroic stories of those few who walked out of the wilderness; and tragic tales of those who never made it. Still others stayed with their wrecked aircraft and slowly perished. Other episodes reveal the dark side of the war with Japan, uncovering hidden graves. Included are many rare photographs as well as maps chronicling this little known but dramatic aspect of the war in the Southwest Pacific.

Never before had they known such hope. In a world drenched in violence and oppression, here was a man armed with a message of peace and freedom. Into lives nearly overwhelmed by grief and sorrow, he brought compassion and healing and the deepest joy. To people who felt like outcasts and aliens, he showed the way home. And then, in one devastating night, all their hopes collapsed. This is where our story begins—in the valley of despair. It is a tale of two friends, a stranger, and a search for truth in a world gone mad with doubt. Historian Joseph Loconte unlocks the meaning of their exchange, set in the chaotic days following the execution of Jesus of Nazareth. Drawing from literature, film, philosophy, history, and politics, Loconte shows how this biblical drama is an integral part of our own story. Sooner or later, we will find ourselves among the searchers.

A ripsnorting Western, as brashly entertaining as they come. Slambang! --The New York Times on John Ford's The Searchers John Ford's The Searchers defined the spirit of America, influenced a generation of film makers, and was named the Greatest Western Movie of All Time by the American Film Institute in 2008. Now, the novel that gave birth to the film returns to print--a timeless work of vivid, raw western fiction and a no-holds-barred portrait of the real American frontier. From the moment they left their homestead unguarded on that scorching Texas day, Martin Pauley and Amos Edwards became searchers. First they had to return to the decimated ranch, bury the bodies of their family, and confront the evil cunning of the Comanche who had slaughtered them. Then they set out in pursuit of missing Debbie Edwards. In the years that follow, Amos and Martin survive storms of nature and of men, seeking more than a missing girl, and more than revenge. Both are driven by secrets, guilt, love, and rage. Defying the dangers all around them, two men become a frontier legend, searching for the one moment, and the one last battle, that will finally set them free. . . "As brashly entertaining as they come." --New York Times "Epic. . .a drama of stubborn courage to which the prose lends a matching stature." --Kirkus Reviews Alan Le May was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and attended Stetson University in DeLand, Florida in 1916. In 1918 he registered for the World War I draft in Aurora, and then enlisted and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. While attending the University of Chicago, where he graduated in 1922 with a Bachelor of Philosophy degree, he joined the Illinois National Guard. He was promoted to First Lieutenant Field Artillery for the Illinois National Guard in 1923. He published his first novel, Painted Ponies,/I>, in 1927 (about the Cheyenne and the U. S. Cavalry horse soldiers).

The Robert Harris novel/film ENIGMA has popularised the subject of code-breaking and military intelligence as never before. Yet the ULTRA secret -- the Allied 'breaking' of the German 'Enigma' code was only part of a much wider story. In both world wars, radio was a primary means of communication -- and searching for enemy radio traffic became top priority. Using radio intercepts enabled the Germans to inflict devastating losses on the Russians in 1914; mis-using radio intercepts saw the Royal Navy fail to catch the German fleet. Radio warfare played a critical role during the Battle of Britain and the battle of the Atlantic: regardless of what a U-boat transmitted, the British developed the technology to catch them the moment they began to broadcast. From 1914 to the great campaigns of World War II, radio intercepts shaped the course of history. Kenneth Macksey reveals how.

From the time immemorial thinking men have sought an answer as to wether or not the world is actually what it appears to be. Delving into the fields of science, medicine, and philosophy, answers to this question are sought in this book by the famed Mount Wilson astronomer. Advancing the concept that life and mind can be understood only in terms of the nonphysical, he explores the ultimate nature of our own thought, the existence of a universal Mind-God-and life after death. Here is a new world to explore, a world that is much greater that you ever imagined. As you search through the dynamic and enlightening ideas in The Searchers you will come to a new appreciation of the nature of things as they really are.
