Blackwell North Amer
Meet a genuine American folk hero cut from the homespun cloth of America's heartland: Sam Walton, who parlayed a single dime store in a hardscrabble cotton town into Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world. Combine the pluck and luck of Horatio Alger, the wit of Will Rogers, the promotional verve of P. T. Barnum, and the charm of Professor Harold Hill and you'll discover the powerful personality of Sam Walton. An undisputed Captain of Commerce, Sam never lost the common touch--he reveled in it.

& Taylor

In an autobiographical account of his rise to the pinnacle of the American retail business, the personal reminiscences of the late billionaire retailer are combined with dozens of interviews with Sam Walton's family and friends. (Biography).
