Daniel: The Age of Anxiety

Item Description
By Peter Pactor '65, "Daniel: The Age of Anxiety is the sequel to Daniel: The Age of Discovery. All Daniel's friends and enemies have returned. Daniel continues to struggle to overcome the prejudices against him because of his age, his wealth, and his intelligence. It is hard to be different. Daniel's fear of and certainty about the coming stock market crash followed by a long depression finally drive him to act. All the experts say the economy is good, but Daniel believes they are wrong. He decides to hold public forums to discuss the coming collapse with the hope that he will be able to convince even a few people to get out of the market and to prepare for the crash and depression. Adults not only don't believe him, but they also mock him because of his youth and inexperience. In his quest to warn people that the crash is coming, he sets himself up as a target and acquires more enemies. People believe what they want to believe, and in 1929, people believed that the economy was good and that the bull market would go on forever. It is dangerous to kick other people's sacred cows...."

Daniel: The Age of Discovery

Item Description
By Peter Pactor '65, "Daniel French is the twelve-year old son of one of the world's wealthiest men. Daniel may be rich in resources, but he is definitely poor in emotional ties with people and practically bankrupt in social skills. Ignored by his parents and mistreated by those employed to take care of him, Daniel has become manipulative and skilled in verbal self-defense. Never allowed to associate with people his own age, and never allowed to attend school, he found his friends within the books and fine art of the three-story library tower located on his family's estate. There he became entirely self-educated, and there he developed his passion for learning. When he is sent off to Cornwall Academy, a boarding school, he is so inept with people that he immediately becomes the outcast with everyone except his roommate. Small in body, great in knowledge and intellect, Daniel begins to learn quickly, and to adapt. His school community helps him to grow, but Daniel has lessons for both his fellow students and teachers. It is an important day in the life of a school when any new student enters that school. That student has the opportunity to be an influence for good or an influence for evil. Daniel has made his choices. Certainly, his four months spent at Cornwall Academy, are for Daniel The Age of Discovery...."
