Raising Sheep Dogs in a World of Wolves & Sheep

Continuing a dialogue on how to raise strong men with strong literature…

Mike Baron writes, “A lot of young folks ain’t readin’.  Just ain’t readin’.  Weren’t raised that way.” Alas, so true….  But part of the reason – for young boys at least – they’re not given much of anything they’d actually like to read. Give ‘em what they crave, and it will lead to all that “toxic masculinity” dontcha know.

Rites of Passage in Classical Literature for Boys, Part 3: Treasure Island

“’One more step, Mr. Hands,’ said I, ‘and I’ll blow your brains out!  Dead men don’t bite, you know,’ I added, with a chuckle….  Something sang like an arrow through the air; I felt a blow and then a sharp pang, and there I was pinned by the shoulder to the mast.  In the horrid pain and surprise of the moment – I scarce can say it was by my own volition, and I am sure it was without a conscious aim – both my pistols went off, and both escaped out of my hands.  They did not fall alone; with a choked cry the coxswain loosed his grasp upon the shrouds, and plunged head first into the water.”

What inspired the author, Robert Louis Stevenson, to place his protagonist in such a precarious position; high up the mizzenmast, looking down upon a half-drunk, half hungover pirate twice his size, bent upon seeing the young Jim Hawkins to “Davy Jones’ locker?”

Behind J.P. Medved’s exhilarating new sci-fi thriller novel lies an exciting set of ideas

If “politics is downstream from culture,” as a wise man once said, where does one put new innovations and business breakthroughs? Could technology and entrepreneurship be more important and influential than both culture and politics?

 

 

Is There a War on Boys in the Classroom? You Bet Your ‘Treasure Island’ There Is!

Once upon a time long ago there was a little boy in a 4th grade classroom staring out the window, not paying much attention to the teacher droning on and on like the adults in a Peanuts cartoon….  Beneath that window and upon the radiator stood a new display of books, and in that display he saw the abridged version of R.L. Stevenson’s Kidnapped (see above).   The cover illustration was the coolest depiction of a sword fight the kid had ever seen.  He just HAD to read that book.  Next came the unabridged version….  Then came Treasure Island….  The kid became hopelessly hooked on history, both fiction and non-fiction.  When he played outside at recess he was David Balfour, Jim Hawkins, Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, the little drummer boy of Shiloh, and Wyatt Earp.

That kid was me….

Here Is an Example of a New Post

This post will have a featured image and some text inside of it. Incredibly, this portion will be in English, unlike so much of the other material on this test site which is in Latin.

Please note that the summaries of posts have different text in them than what is in the post body. This is designed to give some flexibility to editors to have descriptive text that only appears on the homepage which is not necessary to include within the actual post.

I need a bit more text to fill the space that is occupied by this photo so that is something to keep in mind as well when making summaries. On the other hand, you don’t actually have to set a featured image with a post. That would allow you to post short notes which do not take up a lot of space.
