The woman who astronaut John Glenn trusted more than a computer (Reaching for the Moon). A little girl who chose not to speak for 6 years - and grew up to become a powerful voice in the nation (Rise!). The explorers who failed epically - and discovered new worlds in the process (The Age of Exploration). An unknown soccer team in Thailand that grabbed the attention of the world (Titan and the Wild Boars).
Sharpshooters, mathematicians, inventors, soccer players, painters, astronauts, and even an astronaut-painter. Our new book shelf is crammed full of fascinating (and true!) stories from all around the world.
"News of the World" by Paulette Jiles is now available for check out to all patrons participating in the September Book Discussion! Regular print copies are available at the front desk.
"In the wake of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings from newspapers to paying audiences hungry for news of the world. An elderly widower who has lived through three wars and fought in two of them, the captain enjoys his rootless, solitary existence.
In Wichita Falls, he is offered a $50 gold piece to deliver a young orphan to her relatives in San Antonio. Four years earlier, a band of Kiowa raiders killed Johanna’s parents and sister; sparing the little girl, they raised her as one of their own. Recently rescued by the U.S. army, the ten-year-old has once again been torn away from the only home she knows.
Their 400-mile journey south through unsettled territory and unforgiving terrain proves difficult and at times dangerous. Johanna has forgotten the English language, tries to escape at every opportunity, throws away her shoes, and refuses to act “civilized.” Yet as the miles pass, the two lonely survivors tentatively begin to trust each other, forming a bond that marks the difference between life and death in this treacherous land.
Arriving in San Antonio, the reunion is neither happy nor welcome. The captain must hand Johanna over to an aunt and uncle she does not remember—strangers who regard her as an unwanted burden. A respectable man, Captain Kidd is faced with a terrible choice: abandon the girl to her fate or become—in the eyes of the law—a kidnapper himself."
