5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and highly informative 22 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I think this is a great way to get across information about life in ancient times, namely to write a travel book that looks like it was written back in those days! Don Nardo, by far the best historical writer for young people in the U.S., takes full advantage of the clever format by talking to the reader as if he or she was visitng Athens in the year 340 B.C., not long before the city of was defeated by Macedonia's King Philip, father of Alexander the Great. It's very detailed but never boring, and offers both students and adults a refreshing look at a subject that is often presented in a dry manner in schools. I highly recomend it!
