This is Greece captures the flavor and tradition of the birthplace of Western civilization. There’s Athens, with its spectacular views of the Acropolis, the Parthenon, temples, theaters, and marketplaces; architecture-renowned Corinth; Mycenae, inhabited since 3000 BC; Olympia, home of the gods; Delphi, famous for its legendary oracle; and the beautiful isles. There’s also modern-day Greece, where life is lived on street corners, in squares, and at tables amid reminders of the past. The charming illustrations, coupled with M. Sasek’s witty, playful narrative, make for perfect souvenirs that will delight both children and their parents. This is a facsimile edition of the original book. The brilliant, vibrant illustrations have been meticulously preserved, and, where applicable, facts have been updated for the 21st century, appearing on a “This is Greece Today” page at the back of the book.
