More than a hundred poems are grouped under eight general headings: Strange Tales, Gallant Deeds, Unforgettable People, Our American Heritage, Fables, All in Fun, Ballads of the Old Days, and Folk Tales o f O u r T imes. Many old favorites are included as well as more recent verse giving balance and a contemporary flavor to the whole. Edna St. Vincent Millay, Elizabeth Coatsworth, Robert Nathan, Kipling and Browning, Chaucer and Shakespeare, Doro th y P ar ke r , and Ogden Nash are a few of the poets whose work enriches these page. This is not an academic volume. It is a work of love, and the reader will find it a book to keep throught the years, with something for every mood and taste."
