Mrs.soule (Mrssoule) | 732 comments For the January 31st option, would you accept Indian Givers: How the Indians of the Americas Transformed the World? It's obviously about Native Americans but the task description suggests you might want something more biographical of specific American Indians.

Sorry, no. A laird is not the equivalent of a king.

"A Laird is a member of the gentry; historically Lairds rank below a Baron and above an Esquire in the non-peerage table of precedence in the Statutes of 1592 and the Baronetcy Warrants of King Charles I. The title is granted to the owner of a substantial and distinctive landed estate in Scotland, not part of a village or town and that lies outwith a burgh." (from Wikipedia)

I learn something new all the time!

Sam | 175 comments I'm planning on using 90 Miles to Freedom by K.C. Hilton for A1 & The Luminous Life of Lily Aphrodite for C2 taking the word life from the track A Day In the Life.

Do these both work ok?
Thanks

I'm guessing you mean you want to use the first book for A2? For that and for C2, both fine.


message 67: by Sam (new)

Sam | 175 comments Lol yes I did mean the first book for A2. Thanks

Deana (ablotial) | 246 comments For January, second book (Native American) I think this will work?

Ramona

The main character is in love with the "Indian Alessandro". At this point they are saying she is half native American herself, but that seems to change? I won't know that for sure until I finish the book, I think. But there are many natives in the book as workers and in the missions -- the book was apparently written originally to make people aware of the plight of the native Americans during this time period.

Marked (House of Night, #1) by P.C. Cast
See the crescent moon just before the title?

From the GR description, sounds like it would be fine.

Looks like a moon to me (and that fits with the title, too). It works.
