This book tells the story of the first 53 years of the life of John Somerset Pakington. Born in Powick, Worcestershire, in 1799 as John Russell, he enjoyed his early life as a country gentleman and something of a dandy, and, using his diaries and other sources, the story of his marriage, a duel (said to be the last fought in Worcestershire), and the birth of his first son is told. In 1830 his uncle, Sir John Pakington, died, and this book recounts his battle to overturn his uncle’s will, and his subsequent inheritance of Westwood and the Pakington estates and surname. The early 1830s were a turbulent time in politics, and his ambition to get into parliament as a Tory initially ran aground on the pressure for reform, and it was only on his fourth attempt that he succeeded in being returned for Droitwich.

River of Champions is a true, against-­all-­odds story about common teen-­aged boys whose single goal, and the path to reach it, turned them into extraordinary young men. The story traces their passion, desire, trials, betrayal, failure and triumphs. The story is played out against the stark background of frigid winters in the years when the brilliant Aurora Borealis lit the night sky of a struggling, comma, impoverished far-­North Minnesota town; a time when Elvis was front and center. In a story of twists and surprises the boys turn the otherwise sleepy little town into hold-­your-­breath excitement and pride. The story is a treatise of never-­giving-­up, of what humanity can accomplish when it believes in itself and others. It is a story of coming of age. It is an inspiring American sports story.

Decades after his death, the pioneering vision and spirit of enterprise that made Reginald F. Lewis one of the leading figures in the American business community continue to resonate and capture the imaginations of entrepreneurs and corporate leaders across the country. As the man responsible for the unprecedented 1987 leveraged buyout of Beatrice Foods, Reginald F. Lewis established himself as a titan of Wall Street, with the mere mention of his initials, RFL, signaling to investors, executives, and colleagues that it was no longer time for “business as usual.­” The fact that RFL enjoyed this level of success and reputation, heading a billion dollar conglomerate while only in his mid-­forties, might seem astonishing given his middle-­class roots in Baltimore, Maryland. The reality that he had built a personal fortune worth four hundred million dollars and ranked among the richest Americans on the annual Forbes 400 list, all without the traditional advantages of inherited wealth or . . .
