Julia McNair Wright (1840-1903) was a well-educated woman, a clergyman's wife, a mother, and a prolific writer. She published two sets of short children's biographies known as the True Story Library. This particular set, the Reformers (twelve books in one), was published in 1870 and includes the lives of George Wishart, John Knox, William Tyndale, Richard Baxter, John Huss, Martin Luther, Philip Melanchthon, John Calvin, Margaret of Navarre, Renee of Ferrara, William Farel, and Admiral Gaspard Coligni. "The words written by Mrs. Wright certainly apply today as much as they did in the 19th century. 'The world and the Church need a good shaking just now to wake them up to the work of the Lord, and where is the Luther strong in Jesus to do it? He may be some boy reading this book. God knows.'"-R. Andrew Myers (editor of the Matthew Poole Project)
