Yester Tales is a collection of snapshots from History. Short, and hopefully, delivering a punch. These stories might not start conventionally from a person’s date of birth – in fact, they don’t. Sometimes, they’re action-packed. Sometimes, they’re slower, deeper. Sometimes they’re letters written by one person to another. But at all times, they tell you something significant about the person at the crux of the story. These people lived, fought, loved and died, for real. Yester Tales will show you, through these stories, a facet of their life that’s not well-known – or highlight an event that deserves more than just a line in a textbook. Yester Tales are for everyone; young, old, and any age in the middle. Yester Tales will bring History alive.
