There are so many examples in this book of conquerors showing grace to the conquered and allowing them to practice their ways and be!iefs that I cannot begin to mention them all, and it helps me understand why the civil war in America was fought to end slavery rather than to decide which side would be slaves, as is the case with.

Guerber, H. A. These were principally the people who were jealous of him and of his renown for great wisdom; for his reputation was so well established, that the oracle at Delphi, when consulted. These were principally the people who were jealous of him and of his renown for great wisdom; for his reputation was so well established, that the oracle at Delphi, when consulted, replied that the . .ost learned man in Greece was Socrates. Although Socrates was so wise and good and gentle, he was not at all conceited, and showed his wisdom by never pretending to know what he did not know, and by his readiness to learn anything new, provided one could prove it to be true. Among the noted Athenians of this time was Aristophanes, a writer of comedies or funny plays.

It has been my intention to write a book which will give children pleasure to read .

It has been my intention to write a book which will give children pleasure to read, and will thus counteract the impression that history is uninteresting. The beginning of Greek history is therefore like a fairy tale; and while much of it cannot, of course, be true, it is the only information we have about the early Greeks. It is these strange fireside stories, which used to amuse Greek children so many years ago, that you are first going to hear. About two thousand years before the birth of Christ, in the days when Isaac wanted to go down into Egypt, Greece was inhabited by a savage race of men called the Pe-las´gi-ans.

This book is a non fiction story of the Greeks and how they came to be. It starts with the Egyptian Prince Inachus who teaches the Greeks . Hélène Adeline Guerber (1859 – 1929), better known as . It starts with the Egyptian Prince Inachus who teaches the Greeks how to act civilized and settle down. Then, we learn the more realistic story, Greek dark ages, and the rebirth of knowledge. Guerber, was a British historian most well known for her written histories of Germanic mythology. Her most well known work is Myths of the Norsemen: From the Eddas and Sagas - George G. Harrap and Co. Lt. 1908 in London.

Elementary history of Greece, made up principally of stories about persons, giving at the same time a clear idea of the most important events in the ancient world and calculated to enforce the lessons of perseverance, courage, patriotism, and virtue that are taught by the noble lives described. Beginning with the legends of Jason, Theseus, and events surrounding the Trojan War, the narrative moves on to present the contrasting city-states of Sparta and Athens, the war against Persia, their conflicts with each other, the feats of Alexander the Great, and annexation by Rome.

There are many complaints today about our society. Communism, immigration, slavery, and so on, are the list of indictments. This book shows us both the vices and virtues of Western ideals.

We see in the legend of Socrates the beginnings of monotheism in the West, and a strong code of ethics based on a temperate, thoughtful, longsuffering nature. We see a love of knowledge of art in the Athenians and a love of simple,frugal living in the Spartans. We also see how success corrupts principals, and how a tyrant's life can be the most miserable of existences.

We see in several examples a contrast in leadership styles, and philosophies. Legends are important. Art, reason, and work ethic are important. It is telling, for example, when Alexander captures an eastern queen, how she first sees him, and how his suggestion that they learn to weave to pass the time is interpreted by this queen as a prelude to slavery.

There are so many examples in this book of conquerors showing grace to the conquered and allowing them to practice their ways and be!iefs that I cannot begin to mention them all, and it helps me understand why the civil war in America was fought to end slavery rather than to decide which side would be slaves, as is the case with most civil wars in the world, and especially in the east where slavery is still an acceptable practice.

If you want to understand Democracy, Shakespeare, or Judeo-Christian values, this book will help.

Just a few things to consider when looking at this particular edition....
the text is the same as the other edition (you know, the one the "look inside" feature uses), but be aware that this particular cheaper volume does not have any of the maps or illustrations. It is ONLY text. Also, the font looks like an old fashioned typewriter - it's not one of the newer, more commonly used fonts for books. Had I known this to be the case, I would have spent the extra few dollars for the Yesterday's Classics version. The "look inside" feature DID indicate it was from the Yesterday's Classics one, so I don't fault Amazon for that at all. It still would have been nice to know, however, that this edition had no illustrations.

We are a living books/Charlotte Mason family. I gave this to my 12 year old to read (who's a book worm to the nth degree) and his assessment was that it was more dry facts than most of the books we've read which are more narrative in style and easier to narrate. Still a good book. Parents need to be vigilant about discussing false religions and gods if you study this subject.

????????☺it helps to understand the history of the Trojans and the Greeks, this book my have a lot of chapters, but it's worth it and the chapters are short.

Guerber relays the story of Greece in a story-telling style. Her prose is not dry, and made reading this book aloud to my daughter fairly enjoyable. (DD hates school, so does not typically enjoy anything about it!) This particular Guerber is formatted with chapters and an index, contains pronunciation guides, all of which made reading this book a pleasure. Not all Guerbers offered can say the same.

This is a great book to help you get your head around the history and time frame of myths and warriors,leaders and philosophers. With the basics covered you will be able to dig deeper into the area you have a special interest in. This is a great book to start learning abut ancient Greece.
