Ten Boys from History

by Kate Dickinson Sweetser

In this small volume the boys of many lands and races whose stories are told, have been selected not because they later became famous men, although some of them did, but because each one achieved something noteworthy as a boy. And in each boy's character, whether historic or legendary, courage was the marked trait. For this reason it is hoped that their stories will prove stimulating to some who read them.

Stephen and Nicholas: boy crusaders -- Peter of Haarlem: the boy who saved his country -- David: the shepherd boy -- Louis Seventeenth: the boy king who never reigned -- Edward the Black Prince: the boy warrior -- Tyrant Tad: the boy in the White House -- Hugh of Lincoln: the boy chorister -- David Farragut: the boy midshipman -- Mozart: the boy musician.
