"Here are mighty men of the world and makers of modern American. Some of the men chosen as the heroes of these stories were great figures in world history and were selected because they are among the foremost heroes of our own country and our own culture. Hero Tales from History are told with the thought of the mental development of the children. Each story has a hero, full of action and written in a clear and simple language.The history of the past can never become a vital thing to us or to those whom we teach until the men of the past are live, flesh and blood men."
