A collection of stories drawn from life and lived experience, but not biographical, with a theme of basic human values.
The stories related in this book are based on real people in genuine situations. Most of the characters are no longer with us, but their experience shows they have much in common with the characters drawn six hundred years ago by Geoffrey Chaucer and William Langlands. The Greeks and Romans wrote of the same human qualities, which probably endured from prehistory. Tacitus records the vulgarity of extreme wealth. It’s still with us.
