Usually, when historians write about the past, they exclude minor details or what they consider not so significant to the subject matter they are writing about. Thus, these details are excluded from the mainstream of written history. In so doing, these details are left behind to await another historian to make use of and give them their rightful place for the role they had played in the past. 

The list of topics highlighted in this second volume of Stories Rarely Told by Dr. Augusto de Viana justifies the observation that so many details about the past are marginalized by many historians as they focus only on a particular subject they are interested in. This book shows that the marginalized data are equally compelling, meriting attention from historians and their readers. Indeed, as diverse as these marginalized data are, are the perspectives that emerge from each historian. 

Dr. de Viana's book recognizes the unsung people who chartered the Philippines' past, whom many historians have chosen to ignore. (Excerpt from the Foreword by Dr. Luis C. Dery)
