Animals In Young Adult Fiction by Walter Hogan


Original Title: Animals In Young Adult Fiction

Of the many themes occurring in young adult literature, one that bears more extensive exploration is the adolescent-animal connection. Although substantial critical commentary has addressed children's animal stories and animals in adult fiction, very few studies have been devoted to adolescent-animal encounters. In Animals in Young Adult Fiction, Walter Hogan examines several hundred novels and stories to explore the ways in which animals are represented in these works. In additional to providing an historical survey, Hogan looks at both realistic fiction and speculative works, including fantasy, supernatural, horror, and science fiction. Hogan reviews stories that feature wild animal encounters, stories centered on relationships with horses, dogs, and other working and performing animals, and those featuring relationships with pets. Drawing upon established scholarship, this book examines human-animal relationships from multiple angles, making it an invaluable resource for librarians, teachers, and students of children's and young adult literature.

Original Title: The Walter Hagen Story

This is Walter Hagen's own story of the two decades when he ruled the golfing world as king. Hagen not only won a major tournament every year for twenty years-a record never even approached by any other golfer-but his personality dominated the game during that period. Before he came along, professional golfers held the status of hired hands. The Haig was the man who crashed the front door of the clubhouses, and he brought along with him the entire fraternity of golf professionals. This book is a volume in Sports Media Group's Rare Book Collection. Collecting this series of reprint editions of golf's most important and rare books will enhance your understanding of the game while building a library of golf's most treasured volumes.

Sir Walter by Thomas Clavin


Original Title: Sir Walter

During the golden age of sport in the 1920s Walter Hagen was to golf what Babe Ruth was to baseball. He was the first golfer to make his living from playing the game rather than teaching it. He won 11 majors, was influential in founding the Ryder Cup, and was the first golfer to top $ 1,000,000 in career earnings.

The Golfer Of The Decade On The Pga Tour by Ray Holanda


Original Title: The Golfer Of The Decade On The Pga Tour

The Golfer of the Decade is a prize that has never been awarded, even though the Golfer of the Century was so honored. This book tells the story of the PGA Tour as a battle between the greatest golfers of the game for the prize of The Golfer of the Decade throughout its history. I define The Golfer of the Decade as that golfer who won the most tournaments on the PGA Tour in each calendar decade. In case of tie, the winner would be that golfer, among those tied, who won the most majors. The year 2006 was the 90th anniversary of the PGA Tour and the 10th anniversary of Tiger Woods's membership on the PGA Tour. This book provides an opportunity to compare the accomplishments of Tiger Woods with the greatest players in the game who preceded him. This book is not only about Walter Hagen, Paul Runyan, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Nick Price, and Tiger Woods. It is also about the battles they fought and the players with whom they competed to earn the title of The Golfer of the Decade on the PGA Tour.
