The first Christians to visit Europe and the British Isles met pagans who told tales of fairies, talking beasts and other wonderful things. To these marvelous stories, they soon added new ones about the Christian saints. Some were true, others improbably, and many simply fantastic. In the ones included here, you'll meet a saint who spent seven Easters on a whale's back and the amiable lion who was St. Jerome's friend. You'll see St. George fight the dragon, and you'll read about the fierce wolf St. Francis of Assisi converted. These marvelous legends and exciting true stories of Christian saints and heroes will provide many hours of delightful reading to believers and non-believers alike!
