Book description
Originally published in 1904 for young readers, this is the story of Robin Hood, King Arthur, William Tell, and other heroes of legend.

From the author’s Preface: “These stories—handed down from father to son—have been almost the sole preservatives of the romance, chivalry, and splendor of the Middle Ages. Out of the wealth of myths and traditions my selections have been purposely diverse, that as far as possible each nation and each people might be represented in this marshaling of the picturesque in legendary history. And thus may the young reader have an insight into what, in the case of each nation, has become of the very fiber of its literature, art, and music.”
