Growing with the grain, dynamic families shaping history from ancient times to the present
Growing with the Grain, Dynamic Families Shaping History From Ancient Times to the Present tells about exceptional (though not necessarily famous) people from across several continents and more centuries, seen in the context of their family life and especially their childhood experience, education, and reading. Accomplishments in a variety of fields are described, from business to poetry, and from printmaking to mathematics. Approximately sixty brief family biographies are arranged chronologically, so skimming through the volume serves as an abbreviated introduction to world history, from ancient Rome to the present. The recommended readership ranges from under 10 to over 90. The book is ideal for informative browsing.
