WILLIAM TELL by Katharine Scherman


Email this review


This is the story of that extraordinary, almost mythical Swiss hero, William Tell. In the accounts of his phenomenal exploits and bravery in defense of his countrymen, much of the traditional spirit of Switzerland is reflected. For though he was a fearless and undefeatable hero, he despised the shedding of blood. A peasant who loved best to wander alone among his familiar hills or sing and dance with his fellow Swiss, he is hailed as the savior of his country.
