This book was a favorite in our home school for our study of The Middle Ages. There is just enough information in this text to use as a "fleshing out" resource. We would study a chapter, then read literature, use encyclopedic resource books, read first person sources, and study art work to finish out the chapter. Since the book is not too long, although meaty enough for serious study, we were able to make a full years course of this text. I very much appreciated the first chapter. These pages tie in the history of the Middle Ages to our life in America today. I would love to see this text turned into a hardcover, full color text.
