Two books by Rosemary Sutcliff: Black Ships Before Troy: The Story of the Iliad

"The late Rosemary Sutcliff always knew how to humanize the epic heroes without diminishing their power. Now, with the same kind of lyrical prose that distinguished her Arthurian trilogy, she takes on Homer's Iliad. People whose names we all know--Helen, Hector, Achilles, Odysseus, etc.--are all woven into one great story, with the jealous gods taking sides in the Greeks' 10-year siege of the city of Troy." Hardback with library binding, ex-lib, in very good condition.

Set of two: The American Revolutionaries: A History in Their Own Words, 1750-1800 by Milton Metzer

From School Library Journal: “Once again Meltzer employs primary source material to make an era come alive. Here, he depicts the American Revolution from the point of view of its participants: its soldiers, its leaders, those who waited at home. Included are excerpts from letters, journals, reports, and official documents, all placed in context by Meltzer's concise and well written introductions which, in themselves, constitute a clear overview of American history from the 1750s to the 1780s. Through his choice of selections, Meltzer demonstrates the central point of view of the rebels, that they could not truly fulfill the promise of their immigration until they governed themselves. … This tells why one third of the colonies stood up to rebel, and it does so unforgettably.” Christine Behrmann, New York Public Library Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.

The authors bring history to life by using art and maps as a central feature of learning. They build discussions of art into the narrative to help students interpret artwork, and provide analytical map guides that reveal the connections between geography, politics, and other developments."
