Publisher Description

4,500 years ago, Egypt was a nation of farmers living on the thin, green edge of a harsh desert. Life was good but starvation and chaos loomed just over the horizon.

Egyptians looked to their pharaoh for protection. A god while on earth, the pharaoh became even more powerful afterwards. And so Egyptians built a passage to the heavens for the pharaoh, 50 stories of stone rising out of the desert, pointing to the sky.

4,500 years later, it still stands. It is the Great Pyramid of the pharaoh Khufu and this is its story.

""The full page paintings are stunning."—School Library Journal "Mann conveys the stories as adventures and explores the history and architecture of each structure in highly readable form."—Booklist
