There is no shipping charge for downloadable content Herodotus and the Road to History eBook (EPUB) By Jeanne Bendick Get to know the man before you read his classic The Histories. Jeanne Bendick, who also wrote Archimedes and the Door of Science and Galen and the Gateway to Medicine has done it again with this informative journey into places and events of long ago. It is a thoroughly enjoyable adventure…..Herodotus and the Road to History, written in the first person, details the investigative journeys of Herodotus—a contemporary of the Old Testament prophet Malachi—as he takes ship from Greece and voyages to the limits of his own ancient world. His persistence, amidst disbelief and ridicule, in the self-appointed task of recording his discoveries as “histories” (the Greek word meaning “inquiry”), mean that today we can still follow his expeditions into the wonder and mystery of the “barbaric” north, Syria, Persia, and Egypt. Jeanne Bendick's lucid text, illustrations and helpful maps instruct as they open the way for readers young and old to join Herodotus . . . on the road to history. 78 pages, Ages 10+ File Type: EPUB  *Change any format to fit your reader.  Download Calibre for Free.  *You may need Adobe Digital Editions to read EPUB files on your PC.
