Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 3,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because he spends so much time perfecting his flying form instead of concentrating on getting food, a seagull is ostracized by the rest of the flock. This book tells the story of a bird determined to be more than ordinary. This is a story for people who want to follow their dreams and make their own rules and has inspired people for decades. Most gulls don't bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight, how to get from shore to food and back again, in this allegory about a unique bird named Jonathan Livingston Seagull, it was not eating that mattered, but flight. Flight is indeed the metaphor that makes this story soar. This is a fable about seeking a higher purpose in life, even if your flock, tribe or neighbourhood finds your ambition threatening, at one point our beloved gull is even banished from his flock. By not compromising his higher vision, Jonathan learns the meaning of love and kindness and gets the ultimate payoff, transcendence

Too late the phalarope by Alan Paton( Book )

1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 2,218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a young white South African police lieutenant, idolized in his Afrikaner community, who violates one of the strictest laws of that country governing the relationship between white and black. It is a portrayal of the desperate struggle within himself of a conscience-stricken man, a story told with almost unbearable suspense and bringing to life, in its unfolding, a whole family of unforgettable characters: Pieter the young police lieutenant himself; his old stern-faced Bible-reading patriarch of a father; and Pieter's Aunt Sophie, the loving woman who tells the story and through whose eyes we see Pieter as only the eyes of love could see him. Here is reaffirmation of the worth and dignity of man, a book the reading of which is a terrific but exalting experience. John Barkham, the noted reviewer, says, "Too Late the Phalarope is that rare and splendid thing: a second novel which is the equal of its unforgettable predecessor."--Adapted from jacket
