The protagonist, Mary Emma Moody, widowed mother of six, has taken her family east in 1912 to begin a new life. Her son, Ralph, then thirteen, recalls how the Moodys survive that first bleak winter in a Massachusetts town. Money and prospects are lacking, but not so faith and resourcefulness. "Mother" in Little Britches and Man of the Family, Mary Emma emerges fully as a character in this book, and Ralph, no longer called "Little Britches," comes into his own. The family?s run-ins with authority and with broken furnaces in winter are evocative of a full and warm family life. Mary Emma & Company continues the Moody saga that started in Colorado with Little Britches and runs through Man of the Family and The Home Ranch. All these titles have been reprinted as Bison Books, as has The Fields of Home, in which Ralph leaves the Massachusetts town for his grandfather's farm in Maine.

1815. Almost seventy years earlier, Ralph Challiss acquired the Uppham estate on the turn of a card. Caring for it has brought his son Thomas Challiss to an early death. His grandson George Challiss can’t wait to be rid of it. Born at Uppham in 1795, a penniless ex-guardsman Thomas Roberts, formerly with Wellington’s Army of Alliance, is determined to gain possession of Uppham, where he hopes to create a dynasty with Mary Emma Kay.Set during the economic depression that followed the Battle of Waterloo, The Lime Walk gives a closely observed picture of how the Challisses of Uppham and their neighbours cope with living in turbulent times in an isolated Norfolk village which is threatened by angry, disillusioned bread-rioters.Regency life is clearly portrayed: a privileged few, an endless tide of returning servicemen, massive unemployment, food shortages, the desperation of the homeless and the violent anger of the dishonestly dispossessed. It is a period minus the comforts, technological advantages and modern welfare system available to the majority of Britons in the twenty-first century.Readers who enjoy a palatable approach to social history painted with a light touch, who relish an absorbing story and prefer their history sweetened with more than a dash of romance will love The Lime Walk.

The Core Teaching Your Child The Foundations Of Classical Education

In the past, correct spelling, the multiplication tables, the names of the state capitals and the American presidents were basics that all children were taught in school. Today, many children graduate without this essential knowledge. Most curricula today follow a haphazard sampling of topics with a focus on political correctness instead of teaching students how to study. Leigh Bortins, a leading figure in the homeschooling community, is having none of it. She believes that there are core areas of knowledge that are essential to master. Without knowing the multiplication tables, children can't advance to algebra. Without mastery of grammar, students will have difficulty expressing themselves. Without these essential building blocks of knowledge, students may remember information but they will never possess a broad and deep understanding of how the world works. In The Core, Bortins gives parents the tools and methodology to implement a rigorous, thorough, and broad curriculum based on the classical model, including: - Rote memorization to cement knowledge - Systematic learning of geography, historical facts, and timelines - Reading the great books and seminal historical documents instead of adaptations and abridged editions - Rigorous training in math and the natural sciences
