Fallen Timbers (The White Indian Series #19)

by Donald Clayton Porter

THE DEATH--The sunlit days when America's forests and bountiful waters belonged to the Seneca have become a long, dark night of war. Death songs pierce the heart and war whoops chill the blood as the fiercest fighters ever born meet for one last council to decide the fate of the five Iroquois nations and the new United States. And when the die is cast, RENNO, namesake of the legendary White Indian, will begin his long, perilous journey toward Fallen Timbers...a place of glorious dreams, bloody reckoning--and consummate evil. THE BIRTH--Strong in his prime, invincible with his weapons, Renno has one vulnerable spot: his heart. At his side are the sacred manitous and a beautiful warrior woman, but in his soul is a new darkness. Now, an evil shaman hides behind the cowl of the wolverine, deadly enemies gather at his longhouse's door, and only the cry of a newborn child--and the singing of the war ax--can save the White Indian and all he loves.

Falling

by D. W. Marchwell

When Scott Alan gets a phone call that his brother was hurt on a logging job, he rushes to Brian's side, only to find that his injuries are minor--but not before he meets Hank Ballam, an adrenaline-seeking logger who's an outcast among his co-workers. Hank is a study in contrast: he lives for the rush of climbing and cutting trees almost as much as he loves the peace he finds exploring the mountains he calls home. Scott's attraction to Hank is immediate and mind-blowing, and it's what Scott has always wanted: to know what it's like to love someone he can't live without. Scott needs to know if Hank's true feelings will be a roar of passion or simply a quiet friendship, one that doesn't match Scott's devotion. But it may be too late... Scott simply can't help himself from falling hard for Hank.

Falling

by Elizabeth Jane Howard

An aging con man sets his sights on a twice-burned, sixtyish woman in this suspenseful novel from the author of the bestselling Cazalet Chronicles. Harry Kent is the caretaker of a houseboat on the English canal where he lives, subsisting on a nightly dinner of tinned steak and kidney pudding. Although love has been the single most important influence in his life and he believes he knows what the other sex wants, he is separated from his wife and has left behind a string of other failed relationships. Playwright Daisy Langrish has just bought a weekend cottage in the country. She has an estranged adult daughter, Katya, from her first marriage, and a grandchild. Her second marriage, to a handsome actor seven years younger, recently ended in a painful divorce. When Harry shows up looking for work, Daisy, needy and vulnerable, hires him first as a gardener and then, while she's away in America, as caretaker. But when she returns to England, she begins to fall for her charming employee. Slowly and with masterly skill, Harry seduces Daisy, drawing her in to his spiraling web of lies and deception. Told in the alternating voices of Harry and Daisy, Falling builds tension as it winds its way toward a thrilling climax. Both a story of romantic yearning and a cautionary tale inspired by the author's own experiences, this intimate and dispassionate exploration of the many facets of love is among Elizabeth Jane Howard's finest literary accomplishments.

Falling Behind

by Robert Frank

Although middle-income families don't earn much more than they did several decades ago, they are buying bigger cars, houses, and appliances. To pay for them, they spend more than they earn and carry record levels of debt. In a book that explores the very meaning of happiness and prosperity in America today, Robert Frank explains how increased concentrations of income and wealth at the top of the economic pyramid have set off "expenditure cascades" that raise the cost of achieving many basic goals for the middle class. Writing in lively prose for a general audience, Frank employs up-to-date economic data and examples drawn from everyday life to shed light on reigning models of consumer behavior. He also suggests reforms that could mitigate the costs of inequality. Falling Behind compels us to rethink how and why we live our economic lives the way we do. Copub: Russell Sage Foundation

Falling Behind?

by Michael S. Teitelbaum

Is the United States falling behind in the global race for scientific and engineering talent? Are U.S. employers facing shortages of the skilled workers that they need to compete in a globalized world? Such claims from some employers and educators have been widely embraced by mainstream media and political leaders, and have figured prominently in recent policy debates about education, federal expenditures, tax policy, and immigration. Falling Behind? offers careful examinations of the existing evidence and of its use by those involved in these debates.These concerns are by no means a recent phenomenon. Examining historical precedent, Michael Teitelbaum highlights five episodes of alarm about "falling behind" that go back nearly seventy years to the end of World War II. In each of these episodes the political system responded by rapidly expanding the supply of scientists and engineers, but only a few years later political enthusiasm or economic demand waned. Booms turned to busts, leaving many of those who had been encouraged to pursue science and engineering careers facing disheartening career prospects. Their experiences deterred younger and equally talented students from following in their footsteps--thereby sowing the seeds of the next cycle of alarm, boom, and bust. Falling Behind? examines these repeated cycles up to the present, shedding new light on the adequacy of the science and engineering workforce for the current and future needs of the United States.

Falling Cars and Junkyard Dogs

by Jay Farrar

In this collection of beautifully crafted autobiographical vignettes that encompasses everything from the people Jay Farrar has met and the places he's journeyed over 20 years as a traveling musician, to his formative childhood experiences, to his parents' cultural identity as Missouri Ozarks.As a child, he marveled at the eccentric habits and mannerisms of his father, though it has taken over 40 years to fully appreciate his guidance. Recollections of Farrar's father are prominent throughout the stories. Ultimately, it is music and musicians that are given the most space and the final word since music has been the creative impetus and driving force for the past 35 years of his life.In writing these stories, he found a natural inclination to focus on very specific experiences; a method analogous to the songwriting process. The highlights and pivotal experiences from that musical journey are all represented as the binding thread in these stories-if life is a movie, then these stories are the still frames.
