Then without warning it all quickly dissipated, leaving him reeling in disillusionment and despair. In a desperate search to redefine his life, Walker discovers his need to make a difference in the lives of troubled youth. With the help of longtime friend and attorney Sam Kaeo, he takes a job teaching history and coaching baseball at a much troubled inner city high school in Houston,Texas Centennial High Schoolhowever presents challenges for which Walker.quickly realizes he has no prior background. Militant students do not trust his benevolent intentions and principal Bill Sadler is a ruthless tyrant who secretly has a plan in place to rid the already depressed school of all athletics and less than above average pupils. Embrace Jack Klam and Ed Hughes, two most unlikely faculty allies who aid Walker’s crusade to save the school from Saddler’s oppressive measures. Klam is a veteran teacher who had long given up fighting the system. Hughes is a black man, small in stature, who resents having been passed over for the head baseball coaching position. Learn to love the many students who come to trust Walkerand cry for those who lose their lives senselessly. Feel your heart melt as Walkerbefriends Tony Leonardi, a loner with a loving mother and younger sister, while making the youth’s lifelong dream a reality. Accompany Walker as he treks to the jungles of Mexico in a desperate attempt to save the life of the woman he never stopped loving – the mother of his three children whom he shared an uncommon bond. Robin Dobbins places the reader at the center of all the relationships, entanglements, controversies, tragedies, and triumphs. Though the plot is many faceted and moves quickly, The Last Dinosaur’ is about people. It’s a book you’ll want to go back and read again just to spend some more time with the characters he so beautifully fleshes out.
