The Story of the Greeks [SCM]

by Helene A. Guerber Author, Christine Miller Editor

From the first inhabitants of Greece through its incorporation as a province of the Roman Empire in 196 BC, "The Story of the Greeks" retells as an engaging narrative the the history of Ancient Greece and the stories of its famous leaders and philosophers. In 115 lessons, we learn of the Trojan War, the Rise of Sparta, the Democracy of Athens, the Grecian-Persian Wars, the Peloponnesian War, the Conquest of Alexander the Great, and much more. We meet the good and the just; the wicked and proud: Theseus, Achilles, Lycurgus, Draco, Solon, Leonidas, Pericles, Socrates, Dionysius, Demosthenes, to name just a few. (SCM Note): This edition is edited by Christine Miller and reflects a Biblical view of mythology and man's origins. Other versions of this book, including the ones available in public domain, are worded differently.
