The Art of Story-Telling, with nearly half a hundred stories

Julia Darrow Cowles (1862 - 1919)

In preparing this book the author has sought to awaken a keener perception and a higher appreciation of the artistic and ethical value of story-telling; to simplify some of its problems; to emphasize the true delight which the story-teller may share with her hearers; and to present fresh material which answers to the test of being good in substance as well as in literary form. - Summary by From the preface
