The white falcon. by Charlton Ogburn( Book )

3 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of a young boy's maturing, from the age of dreams of great and daring deeds to a growing awareness of his age-mates, and especially of one young girl in his class at school. After an especially severe storm one night the boy discovers a gyrfalcon with a broken wing. The wild creature seems to sense the boy's friendliness and allows him to take it home and care for it. During the next months it becomes the symbol of his dreams, and even when it creates problems by attacking the neighbors' dogs and tame pigeons, he cannot bear to think of losing it. Then comes a day when the boy forgets the falcon in his excitement over being invited to a girl's birthday party, and when he reaches home the falcon is gone. Even his grief is tinged with an awareness that he has outgrown a period in his life and is about to enter into new experiences. The theme is not a new one, but is presented in a style that will have appeal for the more mature and perceptive reader."--Bulletin of the Children's Book Center, vol. IX, no.9., May 1956
Big Caesar by Charlton Ogburn( Book )

4 editions published between 1958 and 1968 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Big Caesar is a huge, ancient truck which sixteen-year-old Ronnie Gaines has renovated and uses in a part-time hauling business. Although he has a certain affectionfor and pride in Big Caesar, he resents its peculiarity and feels that people think him strange if not ridiculous. In addition, he longs to make a good impression on a girl named Millicent and seems unable to do so. He is in a confused and generally pessimistic state of mind until the night he works till dawn rescuing people strandedby a blizzard. He comes to a better understanding of the significance Big Caesar has for him, and this step toward maturity leads to others: a new insight into his hopeless love for Millicent and a more optimistic view of his future. The subtlety of plot and characterization, and the quiet, sensitive writing style make this a book for the more thoughtful reader. The format and Krush's illustrations are distinctive."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, vol XI, no. 1, Sept. 1958

The chemistry of cements by H. F. W Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The viewer is plunged directly into war. The documentary element - the reconstruction of the campaign of General Merill's American infantary regiment deep behind the Japanese lines in Burma -seems to exist on a level independent of the more stylised attempt to abstract the rhythms of combat and survival. Because he experienced combat at first hand as an infantry man in World War II, Fuller has a certain commitment to represent the reality thus bringing the contradictions between re-creation and generic convention closer to the surface than is usual for the combat genre
