Robert Jordan (For Whom the Bells Toll) Robert Jordan is the main character in Ernest Hemingway’s 1940 novel, For Whom the Bells Toll. The book tells the story of Robert Jordan, an American who hides out in caves during the Spanish Civil War and wages guerrilla war against the fascists. Robert Jordan is a great and admirable character, known, above-all, for his stoicism, grace under pressure, and toughness. He is Hemingway’s creation of the anti-fascist hero. Jordan embodies what's called "the Hemingway Code," the idea that "there probably isn't God or a world after this so you have to establish for yourself a code of behavior so you can be happy with what you left behind." Robert Jordan is manly, honorable and idealistic, even in the face of sure defeat. He's charged with blowing up a bridge. It's a bad order, and he knows it. Yet he carries out his mission, protecting the small band of fighters who've been helping him in the snow-covered mountains. He sacrifices himself, for their cause. In a 2002 public radio interview former presidential hopeful John McCain said, "Robert Jordan was everything I ever wanted to be."

Oh No, It's Robert (Barbara Seuling) - Robert is in the slow reading group, his homework always comes back stamped with a picture of a messy pig, and math leaves him in a muddle. Then his teacher announces a classroom achievement contest and he really wants to succeed. As the library monitor, Robert finds many of the classroom books scribbled in and feels that it is his job to put a stop to it - even if it looks like his best friend could be the Scribbler! Paul Brewer's hilarious offbeat drawings highlight Robert's humorous misadventures. Recommended for ages 7-11.
Poetry for Young People: Robert Frost (Gary D. Schmidt) - In an attractive large-size volume that's part of the Poetry for Young People series, Schmidt has chosen 25 poems to introduce Robert Frost to young people. The selections are arranged by the seasons, and Sorensen's handsome watercolor illustrations capture the feel of the New England landscape without in any way trying to provide literal images for the poetry. These nature poems show that poetry holds feelings and ideas that everyone can understand. Recommended for ages 9-12.
Robert and the Great Pepperoni (Barbara Seuling) - More than anything, Robert wants a dog, but his parents just won't allow it. They do agree, however, to let him walk dogs, so he starts a pet-sitting service. Unfortunately, he gets everything but a dog to take care of, until he finds a lovable stray who loves pizza. At last, his parents agree to let him give the dog a foster home, where he can train it and get it to the point where someone else might adopt it. Robert calls the dog Pepperoni and puts his heart into training him. Again, Paul Brewer gets to the heart of Robert in his very funny drawings. Recommended for ages 7-11.
Robert and the Weird and Wacky Facts (Barbara Seuling) - Robert is back for another round of hilarious adventures as he and his best friend, Paul, set out to be contestants on the Instant Millionaire Show.

Nothing goes as planned of course. Fans of the previous Robert books will love this new story of Robert's antics as he gets in over his head once again. Recommended for ages 7-11.

Rob Roy (Robert Roy MacGregor) (1671 - 1734) - Rob Roy was a famous Scottish folk hero known for stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, acquiring legendary status over the years as his tale was told and re-told. Essentially a cattleman, Rob Roy most likely rustled a good deal of his livestock. This was not looked upon as a necessarily bad thing – even the Black Watch regiment, which was formed specifically to control cattle rustling, looked the other way for enough money. In addition, Rob Roy was a Jacobite, i.e., a supporter of the restoration of the Stuart line to the throne. Other than that, the mythology is pretty much up for grabs, and many have taken the bait. It appears to have been a cattle deal gone bad that started the whole legend business, with Rob Roy resorting to the life of an outlaw after being branded as such by the Duke of Montrose, and having been stripped of his property and his living. Rob Roy took up arms against the duke, and continued to do so for many years, until being caught and imprisoned. Luckily, he was pardoned by George I, and in 1727, allowed to return home, where he lived out his final years in peace. Already the stuff of mythology by the time of his death, Rob Roy’s reputation was enhanced even further by literary works by Sir Walter Scott, Daniel Defoe and William Wordsworth, not to mention Liam Neeson’s heroic portrayal of him in the 1995 movie. And – he has a cocktail named after him – what higher accolade?!
