|Publisher:||MacMillan and Co., Limited|
The Wooden Horse is the story of the Trojans, a family which accepted as tranquility the belief that they were the people for whom the world was created. But when Harry Trojan came home after twenty years in New Zealand, with the democracy learned by working his hands, he was the "wooden horse" who boldly carried into the Trojan walls a whole army of alien ideals, which made of that egotistic family a group of human beings content to be human.
