These biographies give an excellent, as well as lively picture of the world of their period; its leaders, its people, its religions, artists, writers and inventors. A feature of each is the double page picture spreads with their dramatic presentation of contemporary peoples. From the dust jacket of The World of Captain John Smith

These richly documented, horizontal views of history are infinitely varied and interesting. This approach adds a new dimension of reality to facts which had not been formerly related to each other, and it comprises a singularly original presentation of history. Anthology of Children's Literature, Johnson, Sickels, Sayer
