Story of the Middle Ages
Samuel B. Harding tells the story of the Middle Ages which he says is "when Europe became Europe." It was a time of transition. The power of Rome was gone, and people groups were once again gaining their own identities and building their own states and civilizations. In a direct and engaging style, Harding tells about the Ancient Germans and the people of the Roman Frontier; he details the end of the Western Empire and the growth of the Church; he looks at the rise of the Franks and their struggles with the Mohammedans and Charlemagne; and he discusses the growth of feudalism, the deeds of the Northmen, the crusades, life in the Middle Ages, the papacy, and the Hundred Years' War. This reprinted, 100-year old text is 217 pgs in pb and includes black and white illustrations throughout.
Helene A. Guerber's vivid books about the ancient empires are not new to our catalog, though they are now available in a different format. As with the books from Nothing New Press, the text is from the original 1896 edition, including the maps and black & white illustrations. Unlike Nothing New Press's editions, however, these books are printed in a 6" x 9" format rather than 8 ½" x 11" and do not include the timeline or index. Please see the description under "Nothing New Helene A. Guerber" for more detail about the content of the books.
