That is why from time immemorial people have told stories and why stories have made history. The schoolboy remembers Alfred the Great because the old gossip who boxed his ears told her neighbour about the burnt cakes: we comprehend the spirit of the Elizabethans through the story of Drakes game of bowls before his men set out to meet the Armada. These are the kind of tales which quicken the dry dust of history into life - no matter what class of history it be.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
