Catch a Falling Star, the life story of Donald Clayton, follows the struggle of one human being to find love and to create scientific understanding of the origin of the atoms of chemical elements. Born on an Iowa farm, son of an aviation pioneer, he became the first among his family to attend college, then graduate school in physics at Caltech. His three marriages reveal his battle with sexual anxiety and a sense of loss. At the same time he struggled to discover new knowledge about the creation of the atoms of our bodies and our earth. His close friendship with two great pioneers of the origin of matter enlivened his scientific life in the United States and Europe. His discoveries created two new fields of astronomy whose beginnings are featured in the book. Clayton's autobiography chronicles the exciting life that he lived on the frontier of the scientific discovery of the origin of the chemical elements within stars. His adventures centered on academic institutions: California Institute of Technology, Rice University, University of Cambridge, Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg, and Clemson University. Catch a Falling Star tells how science and his love of it endowed his life with meaning.

A hundred thousand years from now, it was discovered that a star was approaching the world on a collision course. Its discoverer, Creohan, figured there might be time to save the world if he could arouse everyone to the danger. But the Earth had become a strange and kaleidoscopic place in that distant era. Too many empires had risen and fallen, too many cultures had spread their shattered fragments across a planet whose very maps had long since been forgotten. People were too busy with their own private dreams to pay attention to one more new alarm. The story Creohan's effort to Catch a Falling Star is one of John Brunner's most colourful science-fiction concepts.

For Matthew Graham, being given the gift of his former Scottish manor is a dream come true. For his wife, Alex, this gift will force her to undertake a perilous sea journey, leaving most of their extensive family in the Colony of Maryland. Alex is torn apart by this, but staying behind while her husband travels to Scotland is no option. Scotland in 1688 is a divided country, torn between the papist Stuart king and the foreign but Protestant William of Orange. In the Lowlands, popular opinion is with Dutch William, and Matthew's reluctance to openly support him does not endear him to his former friends and neighbors. While Matthew struggles to come to terms with the fact that Scotland of 1688 bears little resemblance to his lovingly conserved memories, Alex is forced to confront unresolved issues from her past, including her overly curious brother-in-law, Luke Graham. And then there's the further complication of the dashing, flamboyant Viscount Dundee, a man who knocks Alex completely off her feet. All the turmoil that accompanies their return to Scotland pales into insignificance when a letter arrives, detailing the calamities threatening their youngest daughter in Maryland, at the hand of that most obnoxious minister, Richard Campbell. Matthew and Alex have no choice but to hasten back, no matter the heartache this causes. Will they make it back in time? And what will Richard Campbell do?

'Whatever happened to treating children as individuals and not as test scores?' A parent once asked this valid question, and I wondered too as I tried to prepare tenth-graders who could barely read and write at a fifth-grade level for a writing test based on world literature. "This book is for teachers, parents, and students and about teens and their stories - ones that test scores can never tell. Somewhere amid public education's current stance that only testing matters, we've forgotten what education is all about: the relationship between teacher and child, the basic building block for any and all learning. In North Carolina and across the country, mandated programs have pushed failing students and low-performing schools skyward, but many educators, parents, and students (and honest administrators) aren't so convinced that EOC/EOG test scores themselves actually reveal what students have learned. Teachers are frustrated with the lack of time for in-depth learning. Parents complain that teachers lack nurturing skills, are short of patience, and are ineffective in establishing caring relationships that their children find encouraging and stimulating. Many students don't need additional facts drilled into their brains, but instead need more smiles, pats on the back, hugs, love, and simply more grace. These stories offer insight for teachers and parents. Troubled teens might be sitting in your class right now and certainly will be in the future. What times are more sacred than those spent with our young? How much different would our actions be if we saw them as saints, holy in the eyes of God. In the universal scheme of things, the teacher-student relationship may matter more than any test score ever could." ---from back cover.
