Excerpt from Indian Fairy Tales as Told to the Little Children of the Wigwam N the long ago when the red men were the free and undisturbed occupants of this vast continent, one of their greatest pleasures was to repeat the won der-stories dear to the hearts of their people. When they had gathered around the crackling logs in the long winter evenings, or had stretched themselves on the grass under the starry skies of summer nights, old and young would listen in silent delight to the tales of mythical heroes who, they fondly believed, once dwelt on this earth and were far stronger and wiser than mere mortals. But these were not all. As the red children looked upward at the stars shining down upon them so brightly and lovingly; or as they turned their eyes upon the sparkling waters of the stream or lake; they fancied them alive with other and strange beings who had a charm and magic of their own. These, too, were woven into the tales to which they listened with eagerness and delight. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Some Aspects of Indian Education Your President said something about not being afraid. Every man should be afraid; but there 15 only one thing to be afraid of - the only thing in the world that can hurt him - himself. There is no civilization, no Government, that can make a man a liar or a thief. There is but one power to do that - his own - and therefore that is the only thing he need fear. Because 'i believe truth should appeal to all, and this special truth doubly to Catholic Americans, I think it well to speak to you on one of the most im portant problems in the United States, one in which every man and every part or the United States are concerned. I imagine, and have for years imagined, that one of the ancient fables -was something more than a fairy tale - the fable of Procrustes - the fabulous giant with his patent bed, the giant who went out upon the highway and way laid all who passed and compelled them to partake of his hospitality and who insisted that they must fit his bed. If they were too long he would chop off their legs; if too short, he would rack them. And I think, gentlemen, we know that giant, although Theseus thought he killed him 2500 years ago. Who can he be, but that smiling bully, Philanthropy? About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

From Robert Browning’s Pied Piper of Hamelin and William Makepeace Thackeray’s Rose and the Ring to Kenneth Grahme’s Reluctant Dragon and J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, here are seventeen classic stories and poems from the golden age of the English fairy tale. Some of them amuse, some enchant, some satirize and criticize, but each one —in the words of Laurence Houseman, author of the classic Rocking Horse Land—“is an expression of the joy of living.” Accompanied by the illustrations from the original editions of these works—by such celebrated Victorian artists as Dante, Gabriel Rossetti, Maxfield Parrish, and Arthur Rackham—this collection will delight readers both young and old.
