A great book that does exactly what it says on the tin (or cover to be precise). It contains information about not only the well known saints but also lots of lesser known saints who should in some in cases be much better known for their wonderous feats. In fact so wonderous they are unbelievable. It was so useful when travelling Europe as some of the churches contained statues or paintings of very "local" saints and we could understand why they are there and what they did that when we lost out original copy in a fire we've bought another. Really good book - but not if you take every saint very very seriously!
