About the Author
Eva March Tappan taught school for more than two decades before turning her attention to writing. With her extensive classroom experience she was able to create stories that appealed strongly to children. She had "a talent for making stories real, for filling the imagination with fascinating facts, for bringing out the romance of history, the wholesome excitement of heroism and adventure, and the beauty and wonder of poetry, myth, and legend." She authored over 50 titles, including biographies, history textbooks, fairy tales, and hero stories. Her greatest works were The Children’s Hour, an anthology for children in 15 volumes, and The World’s Story, an anthology for older students in 14 volumes.
