Interesting but I can't figure out what all the acclaim for Tolstoy is about. Perhaps I need to dig into his novels. This little book contains the stories entitled: How Much Land Does a Man Require, That Whereby Men Live, Children May Be Wiser Than Their Elders, The Grain That Was Like an Egg, The Two Old Men, Neglect a Fire and 'Twill Not Be Quenched, The Candle or How The Good Peasant Overcame the Cruel Overseer, and Croesus and Solon. The book completes with a brief bio of Count Leo Tolstoy and some thoughts and questions after reading the stories. I can see how an English Teacher might like to have such a book to teach from. ( )
