"The conversational tone of the book with its expressions in modern vernacular makes for easy reading, while always displaying the utmost respect for its subjects. Painstakingly detailed pen-and-ink drawings richly evoke the era. A time line running along the bottom of the pages puts world events of the time into perspective. A full index and bibliography complete this excellent example of nonfiction at its best." - Children's Literature
