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.
"The Story of the Greeks" tracks the history of Greece from mythic times through to the absorption of Greece into the Roman Empire. H.A. Guerber wrote this book for children and she does an able job of shaping a narrative suited for children. I read this book to my six year old son and we both enjoyed it. All the important events and characters have been introduced and we will get to know them better in other children's books. After we finish up on the Greeks, we will move onto the Romans and I will purchase her book on the story of the Romans. Recommended.

The book does not purport to be a scholarly thesis on the Greeks when they were the center of the universe as they knew it. Read morePublished on July 25, 2013 by Graham and Frances
