Reviews
Life in Ancient Africa

Africa, Japan, Indus River Valley, Celts "The informative, straightforward texts discuss the demise of these civilizations and their modern-world legacies. Sidebars add additional notes on trade, beliefs, myths, travel, and other topics. The attractively designed books feature abundant, clear, captioned color photos of cultural artifacts and historical sites, and a few drawings. Brief time lines outline important developments." —School Library Journal, 11/05
