Millions around the world know the name; millions more may know him by the countless iconic characters he created. Kermit the Frog. Bert and Ernie. Grover. Miss Piggy. Big Bird. The Muppets. All of these creations, and more, sprang from the fertile imagination of James Maury Henson, one of the most wonderfully innovative artists and entertainers of the twentieth century. In this first ever comprehensive biography of the legend, readers will hear the full story of his all-too-short life: from his childhood in Leland, Mississippi, to his days of jetting off from college classes to tape early Muppet TV spots for a local Washington, D.C., TV station. We will learn about the creation of the Muppets, the story behind Jim's involvement with the iconic Sesame Street, his contributions to the first year of Saturday Night Live, and his nearly ten-year effort to bring The Muppet Show to television. We'll also explore his foray into feature films-including non-Muppet fare like The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth-and his countless other creative projects. Finally, we will hear for the first time details surrounding his intensely private life, from his Christian Science upbringing and his weakness for women-and eventual separation from his wife-to his love of fast cars and expensive art, ending with his heartbreaking final days as he tragically succumbed to an invasive staph infection at age 53.

Adventure is their call, crab is their prey, and a one hundred million dollar plunder is their reward.. Five skippers and their crews will endure boat killing storms and mind numbing working conditions -risking it all on the hunt for crab. In the end, they will all come to the realization that the most violent storms come from within. Northwestern Captain Sig Hansen, a 30-year veteran and a third generation fisherman, will match skills against his old rivals, Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie, the Hillstrand brothers of the Time Bandit, and Captain Keith Colburn of the Wizard. Joining the fray is Legendary Skipper, Wild Bill and his crew on the F/V Kodiak. Back in the saddle after a five-year absence, Bill will have to find his bearings in a radically changed crab fleet. This year, there's a fracture in the Bering Sea brotherhood. Old allies become mortal enemies when fishing turns personal. While some skippers rage against each other - another skipper fights a lone battle to stay alive. The Bering Sea has a way of turning young boys into hardened men -- before this season is through, terrible tragedy will alter two young lives forever. Forty-foot waves, hurricane force winds, heavy-machinery, and sleep deprivation are just a few reasons the injury rate is one hundred percent. Last season, eight men lost their lives to the Bering Sea. This year, catastrophe strikes at the heart of one of our featured boats.

On the Wizard a tough guy greenhorn is humbled by the brutal work of being a crabber. On the Northwestern, Skipper Sig fumes about his insubordinate deck boss - and brother. While on the Kodiak, bad crab put the Skipper in a bad mood -- and a mouthy deckhand gets the brunt of his wrath.
