Men of Old Greece

Men of Old Greece

$ 8.95

This book paints a vivid picture of life in ancient Greece through the stories of four very different men.  The reader meets Leonidas ... raised under the strict system of Sparta ... who becomes king and leads his countrymen at the battle of Thermopylae.  Then there is Themistocles, who prompts the Athenians to build boats to escape to Salamis and guides the Greeks to victory against the Persians.  When Athens lay in ruins, the sculptor, Phidias, is instrumental in its rebuilding.  Athens becomes such a vibrant city that the philosopher Socrates, when arrested on a trumped-up charge, prefers to die rather than to live anywhere other than Athens.  Ages 8+
