As a Charleston city councilwoman and in so many of her other roles, Mrs. Hilda Jefferson dedicated her life to serving and sacrifice. She touched many lives during her time, including that of author Chuck Trioani. Now he shares his memories of her and describes how she inspired him and changed his life for the better, as she did for so many others. As a black teacher in the 1970s, Mrs. Jefferson was forced to overcome many obstacles characteristic of the time, including racism and the difficult process of integration. Even so, her love for her students-and later, her constituents-allowed her to surmount any adversity. She organized the yearly City of Charleston Christmas Party and presided over the ceremonies in true Mrs. Claus fashion, raising thousands of dollars to buy bicycles for the city's children. Her life was certainly one of hardship and reward, and her passion for serving others has been apparent in both her public and personal lives. Through personal recollection and fond remembrance, Troiani examines the extraordinary life of his friend and neighbor, Hilda Jefferson, a quiet hero who had a profoundly positive and lasting impact on so many lives.

Knights and ladies, giants and dragons, tournaments, battles, quests and crusades are commonplace in stories for children. This book examines how late Victorians and Edwardians retold medieval narratives of chivalry—epics, romances, sagas, legends and ballads. Stories of Beowulf, Arthur, Gawain, St. George, Roland, Robin Hood and many more thrilled and instructed children, and encouraged adult reading. Lavish volumes and schoolbooks of the era featured illustrated texts, many by major artists. Children’s books, an essential part of Edwardian publishing, were disseminated throughout the English-speaking world. Many are being reprinted today. This book examines related contexts of Medievalism expressed in painting, architecture, music and public celebrations, and the works of major authors, including Sir Walter Scott, Tennyson, Longfellow and William Morris. The book explores national identity expressed through literature, ideals of honor and valor in the years before World War I, and how childhood reading influenced 20th–century writers as diverse as C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Siegfried Sassoon, David Jones, Graham Greene, Ian Fleming and John Le Carré.
