Description
Instructor's Guide not included. This is part of your History / Bible / Literature G and Grade 6 All-Subjects Package.

This outstanding collection of sixteen books is included in History / Bible / Literature G. If you don't need notes or a schedule, but are just looking for some excellent reading about the first half of world history, this book collection is for you! Especially helpful for students going through the the first two years of a four-year, classical history cycle.

Mara, Daughter of the Nile is a spy story, a rags-to-riches story, a story of revolution – set in the time of Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt. The Bronze Bow, set in Galilee at the time of Christ, shows what it would have been like to live under Roman occupation. Would you have rebelled against harsh rule? And what made the message of Jesus so compelling? There's a historical fiction book about how Lord Artos (better known in mythology as "King Arthur") brought horses to England, a transformative technological breakthrough in warfare. Read about Saint Patrick in Ireland, about a minstrel in the Middle Ages, about a samurai in Japan. There's even a book about bull-fighting, a marvelous coming-of-age story about conquering fear and choosing your own path.

Books to entertain, delight, and inform. Get yours today.
