School Days

by Patrick Chamoiseau, School Days Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download School Days books, School Days (Chemin-d’Ecole) is a captivating narrative based on Patrick Chamoiseau’s childhood in Fort-de-France, Martinique. It is a revelatory account of the colonial world that shaped one of the liveliest and most creative voices in French and Caribbean literature today. Through the eyes of the boy Chamoiseau, we meet his severe, Francophile teacher, a man intent upon banishing all remnants of Creole from his students’ speech. This domineering man is succeeded by an equally autocratic teacher, an Africanist and proponent of “Negritude.” Along the way we are also introduced to Big Bellybutton, the class scapegoat, whose tales of Creole heroes and heroines, magic, zombies, and fantastic animals provide a fertile contrast to the imported French fairy tales told in school. In prose punctuated by Creolisms and ribald humor, Chamoiseau infuses the universal terrors, joys, and disappointments of a child’s early school days with the unique experiences of a Creole boy forced to confront the dominant culture in a colonial school. School Days mixes understanding with laughter, knowledge with entertainment—in ways that will fascinate and delight readers of all ages.

Indian School Days

by Basil H. Johnston, Indian School Days Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Indian School Days books, This book is the humorous, bitter-sweet autobiography of a Canadian Ojibwa who was taken from his family at age ten and placed in Jesuit boarding school in northern Ontario. It was 1939 when the feared Indian agent visited Basil Johnston’s family and removed him and his four-year-old sister to St. Peter Claver’s school, run by the priests in a community known as Spanish, 75 miles from Sudbury. “Spanish! It was a word synonymous with residential school, penitentiary, reformatory, exile, dungeon, whippings, kicks, slaps, all rolled into one,” Johnston recalls. But despite the aching loneliness, the deprivation, the culture shock and the numbing routine, his story is engaging and compassionate. Johnston creates marvelous portraits of the young Indian boys who struggled to adapt to strange ways and unthinking, unfeeling discipline. Even the Jesuit teachers, whose flashes of humor occasionally broke through their stern demeanor, are portrayed with an understanding born of hindsight.

School Days

by William R. King, School Days Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download School Days books, Inspirational and humorous autobiographical essays on coming of age in a small western Pennsylvania river town during WW II, the Korean and Viet-Nam Wars. Young William fought World War II from a fox-hole that he and his childhood friends dug and in which he was wounded. He believed that since he graduated from a smoky, mill-town high school, he might not easily get admitted to college, so he applied to fourteen of them. After graduating from college with honors, he describes getting a PhD, a less-than-heroic stint in the military and becoming a professor and business consultant. A continuing theme is his relationship with “the girl of his dreams,” a beautiful redhead who he met at 14 and to whom he has been married for more than a half century. He describes his older Brother, who fought in Korea and came home to live the life of a playboy until he met the love of his life, his nurturing Mother and a Father who set an example to which he still aspires. The reader will learn about things as diverse as the Whiskey rebellion, teenage behavior before the sexualization of culture, a useful decision paradigm created on Omaha Beach and how to impress a girl by tasting her hair. The book ends with musings on how two very different people can come together and create a happy and enduring marriage. Anyone interested in what life and relationships were like in the middle of the 20th Century, when three wars consumed the daily attention of the nation, will find this book to be interesting, thought-provoking and entertaining.

School Days Ii

by William R. King, School Days Ii Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download School Days Ii books, SCHOOL DAYS II is the second part of an autobiography that began with School Days: Coming of Age in the Mid-20th Century (available at on-line booksellers). Although it primarily focuses on the author's personal life, it begins by describing the turmoil associated with himjoining the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh. He describes "debates" with Bill Gates, Milton Friedman, Senator Barry Goldwater and Vladimir Putin, travels around the world, several unique vacations and how his kids were able to maneuver him into getting an unwanted cat and dog and building an outdoor swimming pool in a cold-weather city. Two near-death experiences figure prominently--one involving SCUBA-diving in the Caribbean while breaking the rules of diving and one an overnight "lost-at-sea" incident in Maine. King describes himself as a pathological second-home acquirer leading him to becoming a farmer, learning to ski at an advanced age, acquiring a gas leasehold in the Marcellus Shale, sailboat, powerboat, all-terrain vehicle and snowmobile adventures and losing two homes to vandal-set fires.
