Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374384363, Hardcover)

Legend has it that early in the fourteenth century, when the Swiss were oppressed by Austrian Hapsburg rulers, one man stood up to the tyrants. His name was William Tell.

William Tell was appalled that his people were forced to kneel to the hat of their govenor, and he refused to do so. His punishment was severe: An apple was placed on his son's head, and Tell was told to shoot it. If his arrow found its mark, the had would be removed from the town square. If it did not, young Jemmy migh die. . .

With vigorous text and stunning paintings, Leonard Everett Fisher adapts and illusrates this story of William Tell, which he calls "a metaphor for freedom."
