The Lives of St. Wenceslas, St. Ludmila and St. Adalbert by Eduard Petiška.  Selected chapters from the book  A Treasury of Tales from the Kingdom of Bohemia. Translated by Norah Hronková.  This book presents three Bohemian saints from the dawn of Czech national history and brings their time attractively near.  The description of the beginnings of Christianity in Bohemia is accompanied by old drawings  that have not been published in centuries and delightfully catch the mood of the stories.
