This volume seeks to tell for the girls and boys of to-day the stories of some of their sisters of the long-ago—girls who by eminent position or valiant deeds became historic even before they had passed the charming season of girlhood.\' (Excerpt from Chapter 1)

Zenobia, remembering the omen of the eagle and the lion, repeated her counsel of facing craft with craft, and letters and gifts had been sent to Sapor, asking for peace and friendship.
