Meet Sam Walton, a genuine American folk hero cut from the homespun fabric of America's heartland, who transformed a single dime store in a hardscrabble cotton town into Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer. Sam, the unchallenged merchant king of the late twentieth century, never lost contact with the average man.
Finally, some unforgettable words. Genuinely humble, but self-assured in his objectives and accomplishments. Sam expresses his thoughts in an honest, off-the-shoulder manner. Sam Walton chronicles the inspiration, heart, and optimism that propelled him to lasso the American Dream in a storey rich with anecdotes and the "rules of the road" of both Main Street and Wall Street.
