MCGEACHY JAMES - Tales from the West

Title: Tales from the West
Description: Evangelical Sabbatarian Press, UK, 1932. Copyright, Softcover. Good Condition. 82 pages in card covers. Illustrated with full page black and white plates. ' The splendid reception given to Tales from the East has encouraged us to issue this companion volume, and we can recommend this new book as being even more interesting than its predecessor. The Author decided to turn his attention from the East to the West, believing that many stories full of instruction and valuable lessons could be gathered from that quarter. Half of the stories concern North America, its discovery and colonisation, as well as some account of the ancient races of Mexico. The information oconcerning the latter has been gathered from Prescotts History of the Conquest of Mexico. These stories justify the title Tales from the West '. It was thought well, however, to include a number of stories from Europe, which is also West in contra distinction to the East, which was the subject of the previous volume. Sunday school teachers and others engaged in work among young people will find herein an ample store of anecdotes with which to replenish their minds and interest their hearers, encouraging them to attain higher heights of Christian character by fixing their attention on .some of the great heroes of the past, whose work made the world better than they found it '.
