K. Hosmer, the well known author, and the librarian of Minneapolis public library, for his assistance in obtaining new myths.The Russian, Finnish, and Egyptian myths in this edition are, for the first time, arranged for children who use the English language.The illustrations in this work, which have been commended as unusually fine for a childs book, were secured through the kindness of Judge T. S. Buckham, of Faribault, Minnesota.If these stories help to attract children to the beautiful in Nature- or lead them to listen more often to the voices whispering from leaf, wave or star- or cause them to lose some of their dread of Natures sterner tones and coarser forms- then, the mission of this book will be fulfilled.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
