An emotional, revealing memoir of one family's life in seclusion--and the love, strength, and faith it took to save it. Seahawks star running back Curt Warner and his wife, Ana, were prominent figures in Seattle in the early 1990s. When they dropped from the public eye after Curt's retirement, everyone assumed it was for a simpler life. But the reality behind their seclusion was a secret they hid from even their closest friends: their twins, Austin and Christian, had been diagnosed with severe autism. What followed was a painful struggle to hold their family and their marriage together in a home filled with chaos, emotional exhaustion, and constant fear for the safety of their unpredictable but beloved boys. Now, after years of silence, the Warners share their inspiring journey from stardom and success to heartbreaking self-imposed isolation. Above all, it's a story of the life-changing truth that love for family and each other--no matter how challenged--is the path to healing and peace. The Warner Boys is the true story of a family who fought for their children and how they grew stronger against all odds.

J.L. Doc Pendland was born in Northern Oklahoma, just a short 36 years after the former Indian Territory gained statehood. After graduating high school (nowhere near the honor roll) his work took him to North Texas, where he still lives with Carolyn, his wife of 49 years. Fifteen years after retirement, he began writing The Wagons of Perro Loco and other short stories. Much of the humor in his stories is readily supplied by friends and relatives, telling tales of their ancestors experiences, which he likes to enhance and incorporate. Doc is currently working on a sequel to Warner Law.
Glenn Scobey "Pop" Warner (1871-1954) stands among the giants of the coaching profession, alongside Knute Rockne, Amos Alonzo Stagg, George Halas and Vince Lombardi. Warner turned a ragtag team from a Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Indian boarding school into a national power and later won multiple national championships at the University of Pittsburgh and Stanford. His 319 victories made him one of the winningest coach in college football history. A pioneer of the forward pass, he is credited with inventing the single-wing formation--widely considered the genesis of modern-day offense--as well as the double wing, the three-point stance for backs, the naked bootleg and the spiral punt. He also developed improvements to shoulder pads, tackling dummies, blocking sleds and much more. The book traces Warner's rise from his small town roots to becoming one of the most influential coaches in football, a man who helped refine the sport from a tedious, push-and-shove affair into the dynamic, high-speed game of today.
Behind the scenes at the legendary Warner Brothers film studio, where four immigrant brothers transformed themselves into the moguls and masters of American fantasy Warner Bros charts the rise of an unpromising film studio from its shaky beginnings in the early twentieth century through its ascent to the pinnacle of Hollywood influence and popularity. The Warner Brothers—Harry, Albert, Sam, and Jack—arrived in America as unschooled Jewish immigrants, yet they founded a studio that became the smartest, toughest, and most radical in all of Hollywood. David Thomson provides fascinating and original interpretations of Warner Brothers pictures from the pioneering talkie The Jazz Singer through black-and-white musicals, gangster movies, and such dramatic romances as Casablanca, East of Eden, and Bonnie and Clyde. He recounts the storied exploits of the studio’s larger-than-life stars, among them Al Jolson, James Cagney, Bette Davis, Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart, James Dean, Doris Day, and Bugs Bunny. The Warner brothers’ cultural impact was so profound, Thomson writes, that their studio became “one of the enterprises that helped us see there might be an American dream out there.”
