"Since the time of Little Women, no juvenile heroine has been better beloved of child readers than the Little Colonel."
--St. Paul Dispatch

In this entry in the Little Colonel series, Lloyd Sherman, the title character, leaves her Kentucky home with her parents on an adventure that takes her across the Atlantic and through Europe. While in Geneva, the Little Colonel meets Major Pierre de Vaux and his magnificent, specially trained St. Bernard, Hero.

Throughout the trip, Hero's experiences in and relationship to the Red Cross prompt friends and strangers alike to share their stories of being helped by the organization. What begins as a birthday vacation becomes much, much more, as the Little Colonel learns about the notions of compassion, duty, and sacrifice from the most unlikely of heroes.
