This one's the third of the four volume series, subtitled "History for the Classical Child". It covers world history from around 1600 to the year 1850. Like its predecessors, Ancient Times and The Middle Ages, it presents history as if telling a story. It also bothers to inform the reader what was happening outside of European lands during those years. Check it out.
