"A person s soul craves stories, desires to travel to faraway places. Grab hold of a story and within seconds you are transported to other worlds, you travel a thousand years into the past, you jump from country to country. You revel in the enchanted world of great men, are astounded by their stature and remarkable deeds. That is the essence of the tale, enchanting young and old alike."
So writes the author of these books -- indeed very enchanting books, which do everything a great story book should. Few of these stories are well known; some appear in print for the first time. Most of the stories are saturated with the soul of chassidus. Others are honed with the incisiveness of Brisk. All are told with charm and color and love. To read this book is to be transported to a world of the past, a world of the spirit, where every day is an opportunity to gain the riches of a better, truer, eternal world. Read it and glow with the richness of a heritage miraculously captured between the covers of this beautiful book.
