A story from classic writer Hans Christian Andersen that is more a commentary on society than fable. It has been said that a prophet is not without honor except in his own country. It has also been said that he who will not learn from history is doomed to repeat it. Andersen reflects on a variety of history makers who were not viewed favorably when they made history. Still told in memorable storytelling fashion this short story may be a rare find from this acclaimed author. Narrated by Glenn Hascall.
