What people are saying - Write a review
Going through this book, I get a quick summary of facts about various topics (slavery, rulers, medicine, artists, etc.). All of the information is in the front of the book and the explanations are toward the back and explain where he got the info from. I would definitely give this to a young King or Queen so that they can know more about the amazing things our ancestors have done and what we are capable of. Easy read.
