Old Greek Folk Stories Told Anew

$ 8.95

A child's first book of Greek tales containing many of the shorter myths retold with exceptional literary skill. Relates the stories of Prometheus, who brought to earth the bright-eyed fire treasured by the gods; of Orpheus, best of harpers; of the cunning Daedalus; the ambitious Phaethon; Apollo and Diana, and other gods and heroes of the olden time. 

The publisher, Yesterday's Classics, has been carefully selecting for republication the best of the children's books first published a century ago when a Christian worldview and high standards of literary excellence were the norm. Only books that

  • incorporate text of high literary quality,
  • use story to engage the reader,
  • cultivate the moral imagination,
  • awaken an interest in the out of doors,
  • furnish heroes worthy of emulation, and
  • stimulate powers of observation 

meet their standards for selection.
