These eight delightful chapters or stories, reminiscent of the childhood of each of us, are brimming with adventure and pleasure. Here are the joys of youth which grown-up Olympians can no longer experience and only remember, if at all, with nostalgia. A wonderful read for both young and old alike. Contents: The Twenty-first of October; Dies Irae; Mutabile Semper; The Magic Ring; Its Walls Were as of Jasper; A Saga of the Seas; The Reluctant Dragon; and A Departure.
