Great addition to my library

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-11-18) Very Good Permalink

This charming oversized book is the "diary" of a Greek girl sailing to Egypt who was captured by pirates and sold into slavery in Rome.  There are lots of pictures and 4-5 th grade students who like the epistulary format will probably enjoy this ancient history treat.
