Meet the Author

Born in 1841 in a small Quaker settlement in the backwoods of Indiana, James Baldwin rose to become a highly-respected author and textbook editor. Largely self-educated, Baldwin became a teacher at 24, then served as superintendent of the graded schools of Indiana for 18 years before moving into the publishing world. As an editor of school books, first with Harper and Brothers and later with the American Book Company, he selected the best of our literary heritage and cast it into a form that delighted children of all ages. His influence in the first decades of the twentieth century was broad because of all the grammar school books in use in the United States at that time over half had been written or edited by him. He is remembered most for the books of introductory historical sketches he wrote for younger students and his retellings of the legends of the heroes for older students.

    This book was written in 1896. The man in you cover photo was born in 1924. He is obviously a different James Baldwin, NOT the author.

    Do you seriously expect people to pay you money for public domain works when you can't even get the right person on the cover?

    Wonderful language for young folk

    The stories are the type that used to appeared in the readers of our parents and grandparents, but they have been retold in James Baldwin's prose. Perfect for reading to young readers - and the adult won't be bored.

    Great Book!

    This was a great book. Many wonderful stories to read. There was one thing, however, that should not have been. The author spelled Julius Caesar's name Cesar, instead of Caesar. Overall, the stories were wonderful, richly told, and credible.
