Story of the Middle Ages  H.A. Guerber  Nothing New Press

From the first inhabitants of Europe through the end of the War of the Roses, "The Story of the Middle Ages" retells the stories of its famous kings, knights, and saints. In 147 lessons, we learn of the settling of Europe and its romanization, the coming and conversion of the barbarians, the Holy Roman Empire, feudalism and arms and armor, the Viking raids, the Crusades, and much, much more. We meet Christian martyrs and saints, the kings of France and England, the German Emperors, and the knights. We meet the good and the just, the wicked and the proud: Saints Denis, Martin, Patrick, and Augustine, Attila the Hun, King Arthur, Charlemagne, Rollo the Viking, Otto the Great, William the Conqueror, Richard the Lion-Hearted, and Joan of Arc, to name just a few. Written in charming language, they really are interesting! Beautifully illustrated throughout with famous paintings of its historical subjects, and photographs of the places it describes. The covers, reproductions of masterpieces, are a feast for the eyes. Maps are presented throughout the text to help make the text even more clear and relevant for your students. A complete timeline of the events and persons mentioned in the text, a comprehensive Recommended Reading list keyed to the chapters, and a thorough bibliography and index rounds out the book. These are the kind of books that your students will enjoy diving into. This is a spine book for "TruthQuest Middle Ages."
