Twelve stories are offered here of real boys who influenced historical events through courage, perserverance and fortitude. Learn about Marcus of Rome, Brian of Munster, Olaf of Norway, William of Normandy, Baldwin of Jerusalem, Frederick of Hohenstaufen, Harry of Monmouth, Giovanni of Florence, Ixtil' of Tezcuco, Louis of Bourbon, Charles of Sweden, and Van Renssclaer of Rensselaerswyck. This volume is also an excellent introduction to the study of history. Originally compiled in 1900 from selections which first appeared in Saint Nicholas magazine, they will delight today's young boys as much as they did their great-grandfathers when these tales first were written.
