9780142405079: The Teacher's Funeral

The year is 1904, and Russell is 15. Though he dreams of leaving small-town Indiana to become part of a large farm crew in the Dakotas, he's forced to stay in school, where his sister Tansy has just become the new teacher. Through the autumn, Russell observes the strange goings-on in the classroom, including a fight for Tansy's affection between a rough-and-tumble guy named Glenn and Russell's own best friend, Charlie. (Both will need to compete with a city slicker named Eugene who's in the area trying to sell an amazing new invention called the automobile.) By Thanksgiving, Tansy has become a full-fledged teacher and Russell has resigned himself to the student life. In the last chapter, we learn which man ultimately won Tansy's heart, and also who Russell ended up marrying.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 193 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. If your teacher has to die, August isn t a bad time of year for it, begins Richard Peck s latest novel, a book full of his signature wit and sass. Russell Culver is fifteen in 1904, and he s raring to leave his tiny Indiana farm town for the endless sky of the Dakotas. To him, school has been nothing but a chain holding him back from his dreams. Maybe now that his teacher has passed on, they ll shut the school down entirely and leave him free to roam.No such luck. Russell has a particularly eventful season of schooling ahead of him, led by a teacher he never could have predicted-perhaps the only teacher equipped to control the likes of him: his sister Tansy. Despite stolen supplies, a privy fire, and more than any classroom s share of snakes, Tansy will manage to keep that school alive and maybe, just maybe, set her brother on a new, wiser course.
