Each story deals with some real-life characters facing adversity at the hands of their enemies. Although most of the stories are about people who lived later than 1800, some go back further in time, even to the Biblical stories of Jacob and Isaac.
There are 17 stories in all. Each one is no more than 10 pages and each one is proceeded by a Bible verse.
Detailed pencil sketch illustrations by Allan Eitzen are scattered throughout the text.
What I Like: I like biographies. These short biographies are interesting and easy to read. They demonstrate how real people coped with their enemies and those who wanted to persecute them.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Overall Rating: Very good.
Age Appeal: 9-12.
