This is a rich history of the Roman Empire told in a style that makes the book not only a resource for teachers but also a reader for sixth grade and older. Generously illustrated with paintings by masters and maps depicting the era of Roman rule, the stories of the founding, the seven kings, the imperialism, the Caesars, and the decline of Rome ring through these pages of the long-reigning Roman Empire. Master storytelling author, Dorothy Harrer, longtime Waldorf teacher, describes with enlivening detail the rise and fall of this remarkable chapter in the history of Western Civilization. For Roman scholars right down to an enthusiastic twelve year old, this is a book not to miss!
Dorothy Harrer was one of the key teachers at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City in the middle of the last century.
