Fifty Famous Stories Retold (1895), the classic collection of lore recounted by James Baldwin, serves as an early foundation for the love of literature. This volume was widely used in the United States public school system as a primer of many of the most enduring stories of Western culture. What all these stories share is their indelible mark in the worlds of letters, art, music, and drama; while these are the elemental blocks for continued literary studies, these tales of legend and history are timelessly delightful in their ability to charm and dazzle young readers.

Among the fifty stories in the collection are; "A Story of Robin Hood," "Sir Walter Raleigh," "Pocahontas," "George Washington and his Hatchet," "The Story of William Tell," "How Napoleon Crossed the Alps," "Androclus and the Lion," "Julius Caesar," and "Diogenes the Wise Man" as well as many lesser known, yet indispensable tales.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Fifty Famous Stories Retold is both modern and readable.
