♥ Book Title : The Falconer
☯ Full Synopsis : "A significant contribution to our search for true 21st Century education. -Bo Adams, Principal, Westminster Schools We would all trade a lot of knowledge for a little bit of wisdom. -Aaron Butler, Falconer Class of 1998 School prepares us to be successful. We aspire to be happy. -Robert Landis, Falconer Class of 2001 If we want to achieve elegant results we have to teach the tools of elegant thinking. We want our young people to develop the traits of our heroes: courage, compassion, creativity, leadership, invention, vision. We need our students and employees to learn the skills that will give them a competitive advantage in an interdependent world. Yet our schools and training centers are stuck in a 19th century model that ignores this fundamental goal. Geared toward the teacher and student in all of us, The Falconer provides a simple model for making the leap from passive learner of previous knowledge to an active creator of new ideas. Based on a five-year classroom trial, and now used by forward-looking educators to help build a 21st Century educational model, The Falconer adapts a novel interpretation of the classic book of strategy, The Art of War, to new goals of educational creativity and personal fulfillment. Grant Lichtman is the Chief Operating Officer of Francis Parker School in San Diego, California. He earned a bachelors and masters degree from Stanford University and has founded and managed companies involved in education, energy, and the geosciences. Lichtman, his wife Julie, and two children live in Poway, California."Article| Grant Lichtman| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Falconer's Quest (Heirs of Acadia Book #5)
☯ Full Synopsis : "Davis and Isabella Bunn combine their complementary skills and experiences in crafting the compelling stories of the HEIRS OF ACADIA historical fiction series. John Falconer, a hero readers can believe in, was introduced in Book 3, The Noble Fugitive. Along with Book 4, The Night Angel, these last three novels of the series can be appreciated on their own. John Falconer, known to most as simply Falconer, is a large, powerfully built man whose gentle spirit shines through the physical and emotional scars of his previous life as a slave trader. His redemption has brought him full circle to the anti-slavery cause and a personal mission to free every slave he possibly can. After the events recounted in The Night Angel, Falconer settles in a Moravian community on the Underground Railroad. He cherishes his new wife, Ada, and her son, Matt, whom he loves as his own. Falconer finally has discovered peace, within and without. When the unimaginable happens, he and Matt face a loss so searing they can barely endure another day. Falconer finds himself back on board ship--this time with a father's responsibilities and an assignment of rescue rather than capture. His course takes him from the eastern seaboard of America to France, from Marseilles to the shores of North Africa. But enormous danger, risk of failure and even death challenge him on the high seas and in the desert's strongholds. He has conquered many of life's storms, but none as vast as this. All the while, those inner bondages that have gripped as powerfully as iron chains are gradually loosening their hold. And a new hope begins to stir within... The story of character forged in the fires of grief, loss and faith"Article| T. Davis Bunn| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Mauro, a history teacher in South Texas, often watched and became a part of the frequent storms that swept the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. But this time things were different. The violence of wind, sand and sky contained visions of Arab warriors and explorers of centuries past. Could he have been touched by the mythical spell of the Falconer, an Arab of the Middle ages, and could the Falconer's power reach up to him from a forgotten time to reveal some reality long hidden? Who is this Falconer and these Arabs and what is the message they bear to Hispanics like Mauro? The reader may be surprised at this centuries-old truth. * * * * * Jorge Gutierrez, a bank lawyer, was born and raised in South Texas. He attended law school at the University of Texas at Austin where his research in Spanish archives led to his interest and fascination with the Hispanic connection to the Arab culture. James K. Omiya is a second generation Japanese-American from El Paso, Texas. He is a writer and graphic designer who has lived in Texas all his adult life."Article| Jorge A. Gutierrez| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Falconer's Knot
☯ Full Synopsis : "Silvano and Chiara are two teenagers with a difference. Silvano has been accused of a murder he did not commit. Chiara has been ousted from her family as a young woman with no marriage prospects. For these two very different reasons they are forced to seek refuge in a neighbouring convent and friary. And when they meet they are instantly aware that they are both outsiders, ill at ease with monastic life. Then a grisly murder - followed by another, and then another - strikes fear into the close-knit community. Chiara and Silvano cling together within the terrifying spiral of murder as they, and the friends they have made, attempt to solve the deadly mystery. This remarkably rich mystery thriller, with all the pace and action of a 'whodunnit', is set in the incredibly atmospheric environs of a friary in 14th-century Italy. Amidst all the action of the murder mystery, the author depicts in fascinating and intricate detail the lives and tasks of the friars and nuns, whether it be crushing pigments to create paints for the fresco artists in nearby Assisi, or the daily and nightly ritual of the religious services. All the historical detail is carefully researched. A huge cast of characters with romantic teen heroes, combined with the thriller-murder element, ensure a pacy, richly enjoyable read."Article| Mary Hoffman| Statement ..."
