the longest lasting and greatest civilization the world has ever known. Far from being "stuffy" and sometimes
dull as history books often tend to be, "The Book of the Ancient Romans" reads somewhat like a novel, it's
characters and their adventures come to life and the glory that was Rome is described more lucidly and poetically
than any other history book that I've ever read on this ancient people.
The tales of the first seven Kings- a blend of legend and, undoubtedly, history- was my favorite part of the book.
It left me yearning for a misty, mystical time when great societies were built on blood, honor and brotherhood.
For those of us lucky enough to be the heirs of of this spectacular culture (Italian-Americans) "The Book of the
Ancient Romans will resonate as a source of wonder, longing and most of all Pride in a heritage that
the entire world emulated, but is generically and stoically portrayed on television and sadly forgotten by modern,
irreveratnt Italians who today occupy the land of Glory that was once Rome.
Had I access to a time machine
and the heart of lion,
I know where I'd go.
AVE ROMA IMMORTALIS!
HAIL IMMORTAL ROME!
