9781593936884: Henry Darrow: Lightning in the Bottle

Henry Darrow (born EnriqueTomás Delgado) overcame life-threatening illness, crippling anxiety and prejudice to become internationally famous as sexy, complex "Manolito Montoya" in the western The High Chaparral (1967-1971). He was the first actor of Puerto Rican heritage to star in a television series. "Henry survived and had a career when if you were Latino, you couldn't be just good, you had to be beyond great and that's Henry," says noted writer/entertainer Rick Najera. At the height of his fame Darrow put his hard-won career on the line to open doors for other Hispanics. In spite of personal heartache and professional roadblocks, he has continued to break ground for over fifty years as a working actor. He was the first Hispanic to portray Zorro, the first Hispanic to win a Daytime Emmy for Best Supporting Actor and in 2012 he received the prestigious ALMA award for Lifetime Achievement from the National Council of La Raza (NCLR).
Wild West News Book of the Year 2012, winner of the 2013 LuckyCinda Publishing Non-Fiction Grand Prize and a 2014 Reader's Favorite Awards finalist, HENRY DARROW: LIGHTNING IN THE BOTTLE is a must-read slice of Hollywood history and portrait of an inspirational, fiercely determined, endearing and enduring performer.

From the Author:

Henry Darrow lived it and told it. I wrote and researched. Together we strong-armed our nearest and dearest to edit, tell embarassing stories and tolerate the intolerable. In my husband's case, that meant living with a pajama-clad, coffee-swilling, sushi-sucking, bleary-eyed, antisocial writer. Henry was sure he'd die before it was done. He'd call and say in a feeble voice, "Jan, I'm getting older. I could go any day now." I'd respond that he was absolutely forbidden to die until the book was published. After three years of fun and toil, we were all still alive, married to the same spouses and speaking to one another. We still are. And we have a book about Henry's remarkable life which makes us all proud. May you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed making it happen.Jan PippinsAugust 2014

About the Author:

Jan Pippins, a retired social worker and former law enforcement administrator, was swept off her pre-teen feet when Henry Darrow first galloped across the video range as Manolito Montoya in "The High Chaparral" (1967-1971). She says, "If someone had asked me to name the people I thought I might someday meet, Henry wouldn't have been in the top million." But on a trip to Los Angeles in 2007 she and the renowned actor not only met but talked for hours. "I wrote a few short articles about Henry for an online newsletter and he really loved them, but I was stunned when he asked me write his biography. He's an amazing man and phenomenal actor. It's an honor to be chosen to put his life story into print." 

Jan lives on a small horse farm in Louisiana with many cats, two dogs and her extremely patient and almost saintly husband Mike who owes her big-time for saying this. Jan and Mike have a beautiful grown and married daughter who should call home more often and gorgeous baby granddaughter who is still too young to sit up by herself, much less dial the phone or use Skype.
