Description

The Red True Story Book by Andrew Lang is a large collection of short stories derived from truth and history. Varying in topics, lengths, and cultural origins, The Red True Story Book depicts the stories of real people who endure curious happenings of history. Wilson’s Last Fight follows the events leading to the death of a soldier, Major Wilson, in a 19th century battle against English settlers in South Africa and a Zulu tribe. In The Life and Death of Joan the Maid a young, playful girl suffers and unfortunate fate after a group of French children find a gorgeous beech tree, naming it the Fairy Tree, and starting a tradition of dancing and singing around the little tree. Though Andrew Lang is famous for his whimsical fairytale collections, The Red True Story Book explores historical oddities and wonders that had previously been predominately shared by word of mouth. Written in compelling, but accessible prose, this magnificent story collection is suitable for both children and adults. This edition of The Red True Story Book by Andrew and Leonora Lang now features an eye-catching new cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable. With these accommodations, this edition of The Red True Story Book creates an accessible and pleasant reading experience for modern audiences while restoring the original mastery of Andrew Lang’s work. show more
