Publisher's Summary

Legendary tales of the lives of famous people and historic episodes. Of these 50 stories, some have historical value, some are useful as giving point to certain great moral truths, and others are intended only to amuse. A few of these stories are from very ancient sources and are current in the literature of many lands, while many of more recent origin have come to us through the ballads and folk tales of the English people. Nearly all are frequently alluded to in poetry and prose.

Great narrator!

We've listened to this over and over since my oldest child was just 5! It is a family favorite. The stories are delightful and I really appreciate the enthusiasm and skill of the narrator!

Great old stories!

Listened to this on Audible. Most of these are very short. They are good to let my children's book clubs listen to and discuss.
