It is natural enough that history should be mixed with myth, to make it interesting to the populace. But it is uttery unnatural that history or myth should not be interesting to the populace. — G. K. Chesterton

Historical Tales: 10—Greek - Charles Morris



Starting from the destruction of Troy, the author of this book has emphasized the most important stories from Greek history, and rewritten them in detail in a manner especially interesting to young adults. Familiar characters such as Lycurgus, Xerxes, and Socrates are introduced, but so are more obscure characters such as Polycrates, Democedes, and Timoleon. Morris is a terrific author and these retellings provide an excellent review for anyone whose Greek History needs an enjoyable refresher.
