America's legendary road manager tells his timeless and unique story, from his early days of "road mangling" with The Modern Lovers and the original Flying Burrito Brothers, to "moving people not equipment." Phil Kaufman - the man who stole and cremated the body of country-rock icon Gram Parsons - tells it all. The Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, Joe Cocker, Etta James, Emmylou Harris, Elizabeth Ashley, Rosanne Cash, the Byrds, the Everly Brothers - all the classic acts are here, and each is served with a side order of anecdotes and background banter. Kaufman even includes a short appearance as Charles Manson's record producer!

Suppressed for over 30 years, this book recounts the author's experiences serving the British government in its administration of the Falkland Islands shortly after the 1982 war with Argentina. Battling bureaucracy, climate, and the threat of renewed hostilities, the author paints a fertile picture of the local landscape, and injects irony and humor into the narrative.

The life of Richard Adamson, a British career soldier who was instrumental in the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun and slept in the eerie shrine over a period of seven long years. After decades of silence, he lectured throughout the United Kingdom as the “last survivor of the find of the century." Built extensively from Adamson's original notes and other records, this book is rich with historic and modern-day photographs. White-Boucke acknowledges the valuable assistance of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, England, in finalizing this work.

Legendary eight-time pro-wrestling world champion, the late Walter "Killer" Kowalski redefined the bland promo photographs that wrestling promoters used to advertise their events. He often took his Hasselblad camera, lights and backdrop equipment to venues in the USA and overseas to shoot his contemporaries in classic wrestling poses. Included in the book are Kowalski's studies of eastern, western, and animal life during the latter half of the last century. Each page provides a high definition reproduction of his best efforts from the original negatives.
