Maynard

"Maynard Davies, the last of the apprentice bacon curers, tells his intriguing story in his own distinctive style. Always one to turn a challenge into an opportunity, Maynard took pleasure in learning the skills of the old master curers of the Black Country and he shares with the reader the secrets of top quality bacon, learnt over a lifetime: the methods, recipes, smoking and curing. His passion for, as he puts it, 'good food for good people', is his motivation - made by experts, using the best ingredients, and cutting no corners. Funny, wise and very human, Maynard's unsentimental tale will remind readers that old fashioned virtues of pride in one's profession, hard work, an open mind and a lot of optimism go along way."

A young couple, from very different backgrounds, work hard to build a happy life together. Then fate intervenes with dreadful consequences. A terrible act of revenge means that a tiny baby is lost to the family. How will the child's life unfold when she is bought from the workhouse for the sum of just one guinea? What does destiny hold in store for her? Based on events in his own family, tales of which have been passed down through the generations, Maynard weaves a story of love and loss in 19th century rural England.

A Lapsed Anarchist s Approach to Managing Ourselves

Taking the research I did to write Zingerman's Guide to Better Bacon, I'll quote Maynard (like Madonna, he goes by one name), the man behind the book Adventures ofa Bacon Curer and itssequel, Secrets ofa Bacon Curer.

A Lapsed Anarchist s Approach to Managing Ourselves

Part 3 continues to share the "secrets" that have helped take Zingerman's from a 25-seat, 4-person start up to a nationally known, $49,000,000-organization employing over 600 people. It includes Secrets #30-39 and will explore our belief that some of the most important work we do to build great organizations and lead rewarding lives is the work we need to do within ourselves. The book includes essays on our approach to managing ourselves, mindfulness, leadership at the four levels of organizational growth, personal visioning, why the way the leader thinks will be manifested in the way the organization runs, creating a creative organization, and more.

A Biographical Dictionary of Silent Film Western Actors and Actresses

Long before sound became an essential part of motion pictures, Westerns were an established genre. The men and women who brought to life cowboys, cowgirls, villains, sidekicks, distressed damsels and outraged townspeople often continued with their film careers, finding success and fame well into the sound era--always knowing that it was in silent Westerns that their careers began. More than a thousand of these once-silent Western players are featured in this fully indexed encyclopedic work. Each entry includes a detailed biography, covering both personal and professional milestones and a complete Western filmography. A foreword is supplied by Diana Serra Cary (formerly the child star "Baby Peggy"), who performed with many of the actors herein.
