KIRKUS REVIEW

A good editing and retelling job of twenty five familiar stories, selected with general cultural background in mind. Many of the stories are often quoted, some of the incidents and characters have become bywords and symbols, such as the ""Seven Sleepers,"" the ""Fountain of Youth,"" ""Rich as Croesus,"" etc. Stories drawn from legend, mythology and history, and including some such characters as Chevalier Bayard, Magellan, Ponce de Leon, King Richard and Blondell.
