Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This spirited reading of the first in Susan Wise Bauer's history series brings to life the stories and records of the peoples of ancient times. Now more than ever, other countries and customs affect our everyday lives-and our children need to learn about the people who live all around the globe. Susan Wise Bauer has provided a captivating guide to the history of the ancient world. Written in an engaging, straightforward manner, weaves world history into a storybook format. This volume covers the major historical events from the years 400 to 1600--from the fall of Rome through the rise of the Renaissance. This audiobook is a collaboration between Jim Weiss, whose voice has been described as "liquid gold" (CNN-TV), and Susan Wise Bauer, whose writing has been described as "timeless and intelligent" (). It may be used along with the print books ( Volume 2 Text Book, Activity Book, and Tests; each sold separately), as a supplement to a traditional history curriculum, or independently. Approximately 11 hours on 9 CDs.
