Item description for The Book of Saints and Heroes by Andrew Lang & Lenora Lang...

Overview
The first Christians to visit Europe and the British Isles met pagans who told tales of fairies, talking beasts, and other wonderful things. To these marvelous stories, they soon added new ones about the Christian saints. Some were true, others improbable, and many simply fantastic. In the ones we include here, you'll meet the saint who spent seven Easters on a whale's back and the amiable lion who was St. Jerome's friend. You'll see St. George fight the dragon, and you'll read about the fierce wolf St. Francis of Assisi converted. But many of these stories have in them scarcely a wave of the fairy wand. So you'll also find here true tales of great saints such as St. Louis of France, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Xavier, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary - souls marked by courage, kindness, and piety. These marvelous legends and exciting true stories of Christian saints and heroes will provide many hours of delightful reading to believers and non-believers alike!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Saints and Heroes?

Very good-- for older children  Jun 13, 2008
This collection of saints stories is well done. It includes some saints who are little known, such as St. Richard of Chichester and St. Germanus. The illustrations inside are lovely pen and ink (no color). Definitely worth adding to your collection.

One Caveat: the language and attention to historical and geographical detail make it suitable for ages 12 and up, perhaps a little younger (10) for reading aloud.
