2 ABERNATHY, JOHN R; ROOSEVELT, KERMIT (INTRODUCTION); COLEMAN, JON T. (FOREWORD). " Catch 'em Alive Jack ": The Life And Adventures Of An American Pioneer.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln and London: 2006. Bison Books Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Best known for catching wolves alive with his bare hands, John R. Abernathy (1876-1941) was born to Scottish ancestors in Texas. Raised in the burgeoning railroad town of Sweetwater, Abernathy considered himself a true son of the Wild West. In his amazing life he worked as a U.S. marshal, sheriff, Secret Service agent, and wildcat oil driller. But it was the accidental discovery of a bold means of catching wolves alive that made Abernathy famous and drew the attention of President Theodore Roosevelt. By forcing his hand deep enough into a wolf's mouth, he could stun the creature long enough to capture it, a service for which he was paid fifty dollars by eager ranchers. This Bison Books edition brings Abernathy's vivid account of his life into print for the first time since its original publication in 1936. Kermit Roosevelt (1889-1943) hunted big game with his father, President Theodore Roosevelt, and served in World War I and World War II. Jon T. Coleman is an assistant professor of history at Notre Dame and the author of Vicious: Wolves and Men in America. "An excellent Foreword by Jon Coleman summarizes Abernathy's life and places it in the context of his time." —Stanley D. Casto, East Texas Historical Journal "Abernathy is very good at creating and telling stories about his exploits, and at times you get the feeling that he might be exaggerating a bit as when he talks about crawling into a cave after a bear. However, his style keeps the stories short and makes the book a quick, light read. . . . Abernathy embodies the myth of heroic American male conquering the West."—Doug Werden, Southwestern American Literature

A two-time runaway from his loving, comfortable, colorful life in Aleppo, as a 15-year-old boy, Joseph Aboudi came careening down a Lebanese mountainside to land on the other side of the fence of then British mandated Palestine.
