To these marvelous stories, they soon added new ones about the Christian saints.Some were true, others improbable, and many simply fantastic. In the ones we include here, you'll meet the 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.But many of these stories have in them scarcely a wave of the fairy wand. So you'll also find here true tales of great saints such as St. Louis of France, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Francis Xavier, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary — souls marked by courage, kindness, and piety.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!Read the exciting stories of: St. AnthonySt. AugustineSt. PaulSt. BrendanSt. ColetteSt. ColumbaSt. Elizabeth of HungarySt. CuthbertSt. DorotheaSt. DunstanSt. Richard of ChichesterSt. Francis of AssisiSt. Francis XavierSt. Louis IXSt. JeromeSt. Margaret of ScotlandSt. GeorgeSt. John of GodSt. MalchusSt. SenanSt. Simeon StylitesSt. Vincent de Paul, and others.
