Dorothy Mills wrote some wonderful history books in the 1920s for use by middle school students, and Memoria Press has brouhgt these books back into publication—with added illustrations!
The journey continues, starting in Crete and ending in the Hellenistic Age ushered in by Alexander the Great. Students learn about the development of democracy, the primordial defense of democracy in the Persian wars, the heyday of Athens (also known as the Golden Age), and that sad self-destruction known as the Peloponnesian wars. But it is not history alone—culture, values, and life lessons are also taught.
