In vibrant prose, Z. Vance Wilson offers insight to anyone, whether parent or teacher, responsible for guiding children on the joyous, difficult, and ever-unpredictable path to becoming their best selves intellectually, socially, morally, and spiritually. With judiciousness, good will, and humor (all sharpened as head of a leading boys' school in Washington, D.C.), Wilson puts forth a clear set of principles, both practical and idealistic, for adults directing children toward wisdom and joy. An award-winning novelist, Wilson draws on colorful tales from his childhood in the American south, rousing episodes in history, and a remarkable assortment of poems, novels, and biblical readings, to illustrate the challenges children face and to illuminate the ways adults may best reach and teach them.

About the Author:
Z. Vance Wilson has served as headmaster of St. Albans School in Washington, D.C. since 1999. A graduate of Yale University with degrees from Trinity College, Dublin, and the University of Virginia, he previously taught and served as an administrator at the Lovett School in Atlanta, the Asheville School in Asheville, NC, the Madison Area Technical College, in Madison, WI, the Tower Hill School in Wilmington, DE, and the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore, MD. He is the author of They Took Their Stand: The Integration of Southern Private Schools and an award-winning novel, The Quick and the Dead, and he has coauthored two books on curriculum issues, Paths to New Curriculum and Taking Measure.
Review:
Imagine an educator in this self-seeking age who cares about something more important than test scores, college admission, and financial success. Imagine an educator in this cynical age who talks about God, heroism, and self-sacrifice. Vance Wilson is a voice crying in the wilderness of an age in which young people are starved for meaning and thirsty for purpose. This is a book every parent and teacher should read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest. (F. Washington Jarvis, Headmaster Emeritus of the Roxbury Latin School and director of the Educational Leadership and Ministry Program at Yale Divinity School)
