Fire in the Steppe (also translated into English as Sir Michael and Colonel Wolodyjowski) is a historical novel by the Polish author Henryk Sienkiewicz, published in 1888. It is the third volume in a series known to Poles as "The Trilogy", being preceded by With Fire and Sword (1884) and The Deluge (1886). The novel's protagonist is Michal Wolodyjowski. Sienkiewicz combines the adventure novel with the historical love story, setting the action in the huge territory from Silesia to easternmost Ukraine, mostly in military camps, but also at the royal court, in the manors of the nobility, and in local parliaments. The novel follows wars between Poland and the Ottoman Empire in the late 17th century. Fire in the Steppe was adapted to the screen by Polish director Jerzy Hoffman in 1968, as Colonel Wolodyjowski. The film was also serialized on Polish television, under the title The Adventures of Sir Michael. Henryk Sienkiewicz (1846-1916) was a Polish journalist and Nobel Prize-winning novelist. A Polish noble, he was one of the most popular Polish writers at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, and received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1905 for his "outstanding merits as an epic writer." Many of his novels remain in print. In Poland he is best known for his "Trilogy" of historical novels – With Fire and Sword, The Deluge, and Sir Michael – set in the 17th-century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth; internationally he is best known for Quo Vadis, set in Nero's Rome.  [Elib]

Hero-tales of Ireland by Jeremiah Curtin( Book )

32 editions published between 1894 and 2016 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once upon a time all of the legends of Fin MacCool, an ancient hero of Gaelic mythology, were written down for posterity. Saint Patrick, however, was obliged to order two-thirds of them destroyed. The tales were so entertaining, said he, that the people of Erin would do nothing but listen to them. Fortunately for us, many Fenian tales survive, as this captivating collection features 24 tales of super-human heroes and their adventures. Compiled by an ethnographer from the Smithsonian Institution who traveled Ireland in the late nineteenth century in search of these vanishing folk tales, this volume abounds with fantastic accounts of bold warriors who battle dragons and giants, outwit sorcerers, and with the help of loyal comrades, overcome death itself. This delightful collection represents not only a valuable resource for students of anthropology and aficionados of Celtic lore but also hours of enchanting reading for lovers of folk tales
