Leonard Everett Fisher (au) (il). Legend has it that early in the 14th century, when the Swiss were oppressed by Austrian Hapsburg rulers, one man stood up to the tyrants. His name was William Tell. He was appalled that his people wee forced to kneel to the hat of their governor, & he refused to do so. His punishment was severe: An apple was placed on his sonís head, & Tell was told to shoot it. If his arrow found its mark, the hat would be removed from the town square. If it did not, young Jemmy might die . . . . With vigorous text & stunning paintings, Leonard Everett Fisher adapts & illustrates the story of William Tell, which he calls ďa metaphor for freedom.Ē
