A TREASURY OF HERO STORIES

A homely, rather old-fashioned collection of stories that are divided into three sections:- heroes and heroines of ancient days, featuring such people as David and Goliath, Androeles, Horatius at the bridge; American heroes and heroines, ranging from Washington and Daniel Boone to Harriet Tubman and Booker T. Washington; heroes and heroines of many lands, including Robin Hood, Sun Yat Sen and David Livingstone. There are legendary stories (some of doubtful validity such as the famous boy who saved Holland by putting his finger in the dyke). Useful for that difficult to locate character about which a school assignment has been given. Somewhat oversimplified style..... New type of book from Hart-cloth bound- large type.
