Excerpt from Worth While People

From Thermopylae to the Panama Canal Mr. Gould tells tales of deeds worth doing. The wide range of his great experience as a successful story-teller has guided him in choosing the essential points of tales of historic figures and of others in every-day life whose deeds have been like steps to something great. In fact, "Toward Something Great" might well describe this book of achievement and conduct stories, all of them filled with action and interest like the authors already famous Children's Plutarch and all of them suggesting the finer springs of conduct and aiding in character-building.

It is a book of world stories, ranging in its themes from strange tales of history and the daily life of America to scenes in Europe, India, China, and Japan. It is a series of pictures of brave hearts with other tales all illustrating acts from motives that make life richer and happier. Mr. Gould's story-telling is always to the point and interesting, a happy mingling of good things from history, biography, and the happenings of the daily life about us. For these are chiefly stories of the real world, not fiction, but tales of things done by worth while people.
