This collection of stories tells the story of boys from history who accomplished something of renown while still very young. Several of the heroes went on to achieve even greater fame as an adult, but these stories focus only on their boyhood exploits. Subjects include King David, Edward the Black Prince, Louis XVII of France, Samuel Morse, David Farragut, Wolfgang Mozart, and several others.

Preface

In this small volume the boys of many lands and races whose stories are told, have been selected not because they later became famous men, although some of them did, but because each one achieved something noteworthy as a boy. And in each boy's character, whether historic or legendary, courage was the marked trait. For this reason it is hoped that their stories will prove stimulating to some who read them.

K. D. S.
