The world during the Renaissance and Reformation is brought to life.
Discover the world of Christopher Columbus, Prince Henry the Navigator, Gutenburg, Queen Isabella, Leonardo da Vinci, Mohammed II, Martin Luther, Vasco de Gama, Copernicus, Michelangelo and many others all come to life as Foster weaves a tapestry of history.
The author presents the events of this important period as a series of miniature dramas, exciting in themselves, but made more fascinating by the way in which they interlock. It is this emphasis on the interaction of events and people--the horizontal approach to history--that has brought Mrs. Foster numerous awards (including three Newbery Honors). Includes timelines, maps and charts.
