But New York City has five "boroughs": Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island. Four hundred years ago, Manhattan Island was the home of the Algonguin Indians.

This book has 5 stories. In these stories, I really like the first story. The first story is about old man. He is a old man who dose a cafe with his wife and his son. But he didn't help his wife and didn't do the cafe's work. He always talked about his history. When he was young, he could catch the frying flies. But one night a man entered his cafe, and he wanted to stole something. But the old man could attack to the thief miraculously, so he became a hero in that town.
     The title of first story is "Quick Man Tan", second story is "The Wheel on the Wall", third is "Special Clay", Fourth is "The Trishaw Man" and fifth story is "Beautiful thing".
