Saint Dominic led a life of excitement and adventure. As a boy he sold his books to feed the poor and offered himself as ransom for a prisoner. As a young priest he rode with a king's cavalcade to carry a marriage offer to the princess of Denmark from the prince of Castile. But his greatest adventures came when he walked from town to town and preached the word of God and the power of the Holy Rosary prayer.
The work of the thousands of Dominican priests and sisters all over the world stands today-seven centuries later-as a living memorial to the sanctity of their founder. Illustrated.

|Review:||This biography follows St Dominic during his many and varied journeys to teach and to preach to the common people. These efforts resulted in the Dominican order and the development of the rosary. The complex politics of the time are simplified for young readers. It is a delightful read.|
