Red Book Of Heroes by Andrew Lang

Heretofore Mr. Lang and his wife have dealt largely with folk-lore and legendary romance; now they find it necessary to turn to reality. As a trade-mark, they adhere to the rainbow nomenclature, but ' The red book of heroes ' claims to be history, wherein the lives represented are marked by two dominant characteristics, honor and courage.Accounts of such heroes as Florence Nightingale. John Howard the philanthropist, Hannibal, Father Damien, the apostle of the lepers, the Marquis of Montrose, the little Abbess, and others. "e;It would surely be an abnormal child who would not welcome ' The red book of heroes ' among his Christmas gifts."e; - N.Y. Times"e;Mrs. Lang has a very pretty story-telling gift of her own. while Mr. Lang does his part in giving the books a background of scholarship."e; - The Outlook. This book is fully illustrated and annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer.
