Reviews

"Most readers will find stories they haven't heard before in this volume and will discover new inspiration from the familiar. Despite their subjects' renown, they are presented so that their strength is inspiring rather than overwhelming. A resource to enrich the shelves of every home and library."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
