I am homeschooled and I started reading along in this book with the audio. Kara did a really good job the way she goes slowly but not to slow through the text, helps me understand things better. Thank you!

Superb and timeless history staple

(5 stars)

This book, in all its volumes, is a treasure. We use it combined with other sorts of narrative history and spines. A solid staple for our homeschool. My children really like this book we read it along with the Librivox recording. Anytime we need a history refresher we know where to look. "An Island Story" is equally superb.

lovely book
