    Weaving together primary sources containing eyewitness accounts, original writings, detailed maps and numerous colorful illustrations; this is not your typical Middle Ages History text. In fact, you may quickly agree that this book breathes new life into world history! Beginning with an introduction to the "cast of characters" students are quickly transported back in time as the storyline unravels revealing this pivotal time period that is crucial to understanding our own times. The history of the Middle Ages is one of believers and barbarians, popes and peasants, competing empires and unforgettable leaders. It also the story of the fall of the Roman Empire, invasion of the Huns, the rise of feudalism, and the reign of plunder brought by the Vikings. But it is also a story of faith: Augustine and Aquinas, Francis of Assisi, Joan of Arc, and the Crusaders; the spread and reform of religious institutions; expansions of trade and city life, the rise of regional empires and local feudal regimes and the revolutionary advances in science and technology. Engaging writing, abundant illustrations and a detailed timeline all flow together to create a telling of history that will delight teens and adults alike. Recommended for the Beautiful Feet Medieval History Literature guide, this book would be a valuable asset to any study of the Middle Ages. Hc, 189 pgs. ~ Deanne

    Did you know that Mark Twain wrote a major work on Joan of Arc? I didn't either! However, Mark Twain himself stated, "I like Joan of Arc best of all my books; and it is the best…" He spent twelve years researching detailed accounts written by both the French and the English, and two years writing. This story is amazingly told (remember, it is written by one of the best storytellers of all time!), as Twain ingeniously has a fictional man by the name of Alden, translating a fictional memoir by the narrator and Joan's long time friend, de Conte. This is an extraordinary book about an infamous woman, written by a literary phenomenon. Pb, 452 pgs. – elise

       Originally written in the mid-twentieth century, this text provides readers with an interesting overview of some of the leading personalities and events from world history, beginning with the fall of the Roman Empire to the close of the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Students will gain valuable exposure to the laws and culture that developed in medieval Europe, as well as the significant changes that came to people in the West because of the Crusades. Several chapters also touch upon the feudal system in Europe, the influence of the monks and monasteries, and the exploits of influential knights and monarchs. Some of the cultural references in the text material are a bit dated, yet this world history supplement still offers readers a useful overview of the early development of Western Europe. 216 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Fourth in the A Child's Geography series, this one or two semester course studies the vast and tiny kingdoms that made up Western Europe, along with the modern day countries of Western Europe. Picking up where the A Child's Geography Volume 3: Explore the Classical World (#007672) ended, this book explores the tumultuous times between the Classical era and the Renaissance. While having a basic knowledge of the Classical period is helpful in understanding the nuances of the Middle Ages, it is not necessary to complete the other volumes in the series before embarking on this journey.

    Written in a similar style to the preceding volumes, history and geography are taught with a living book approach that weaves together engaging text and vibrant photographs and graphics. Students will truly feel as if they are walking in the footsteps of the great minds from the medieval world like Charlemagne, Ferdinand and Isabella, Joan of Arc, Johannes Gutenberg, and Martin Luther while exploring Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the tiny kingdoms: Andorra, Monaco, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg.

    While the textbook is a standalone resource for readings and narration exercises, the author has provided a website link to download additional activities. This includes timelines for each chapter, maps to label (and completed maps), hands- on activities that include games and craft projects, recipes, supplemental reading resources, prayer guide and much more. Additional links are scattered throughout the text which provide media resources on a variety of topics. Chapters include bold vocabulary words with a glossary in the back. 240 pgs, SC. ~ Deanne
