Abstract:

"'Thousands of years ago in northern Africa, people lived in little villages scattered along the banks of a mighty river. On either side, beyond the river's reach, golden desert sands stretched to the farthest horizon; but the river provided a thin ribbon of green land, and on this land the people grew their crops and built their homes.' Thus begins the fascinating story of Ancient Egypt - a story intertwined with the other civilizations that existed alongside her in the ancient world. With this captivating narrative, you will explore all that made Egypt famous: her powerful pharaohs; the mystery of her hieroglyphs; her unique art, pervading religion, and towering pyramids. But you will also discover the stories of her neighbors, far and near, as you read about why a tiny carved cylinder was so important to Ancient Sumerians, the puzzle of a vanished people in the Indus Valley whose writing we still cannot decipher, how a stone finger pointing to the sky in Ancient Babylon influenced our system of justice today, why writing on turtle shells assured a lasting dynasty in Ancient China, which charging bull the Ancient Minoans could not leap over, the secrets of a chalk horse and giant stones in Ancient Britain, plus, many other neighbors' stories."--Publisher's description.
