The seven parts into which this book is divided include the best known Tolstoy stories, God Sees the Truth, but Waits and A Prisoner in the Caucasus which Tolstoy himself considered as his best.
The foremost among the world's greatest story-writers, and the most distinguished personality in modern Russian literature, Leo Tolstoy is a household word the world over. The purpose of all true creative art, he believed, is to teach. But the message in all his stories is presented with such humor that the reader hardly realizes that is strongly didactic.
Other stories included in this volume are : How Much Land does a Man Want? depicting the greed of a peasant for land; the most brilliantly told parable. Ivan the Fool.
