This survey of ancient Greece introduces students to the myths of Icarus and Oedipus, as well as historical figures like Socrates and Alexander the Great.

In The Story of the Greeks, historian and mythologist H. A. Guerber presents an engaging overview of ancient Greek life, from the earliest inhabitants of the Greek peninsula to its eventual conquest by Rome. Written specifically for students, Guerber focuses her narrative on significant individuals and the roles they played in history.

From mythical origin stories to the founding and development of Greek city-states, Guerber tells of the Peloponnesian War and Spartan military domination; the great Athenian philosophers, Socrates and Plato; the rise of Macedon under Philip and his son Alexander the Great; Ancient Greek drama; the Olympic Games; the Colossus of Rhodes; and much more.
