Sam Walton: Made in America, by Sam Walton and John Huey (1996)
Born in 1918 in Kingfisher, Oklahoma, a whistle stop on the Oklahoma, Kansas & Texas railroad line, Sam Walton could feel small-town America in his bones. That profound sense of his environment lay at the heart of Walton's success. He understood the value of the hard-earned dollar for the majority of Americans and he appreciated the latent buying power in areas that a lot of larger corporations passed by.
