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.
