Acclaimed author James Reston, Jr.'s Warriors of God is the rich and engaging account of the Third Crusade (1187-1192), a conflict that would shape world history for centuries and which can still be felt in the Middle East and throughout the world today. James Reston, Jr. offers a gripping narrative of the epic battle that left Jerusalem in Muslim hands until the twentieth century, bringing an objective perspective to the gallantry, greed, and religious fervor that fueled the bloody clash between Christians and Muslims. As he recounts this rousing story, Reston brings to life the two legendary figures who led their armies against each other. He offers compelling portraits of Saladin, the wise and highly cultured leader who created a united empire, and Richard the Lionheart, the romantic personification of chivalry who emerges here in his full complexity and contradictions. From its riveting scenes of blood-soaked battles to its pageant of fascinating, larger-than-life characters, Warriors of God is essential history, history that helps us understand today's world.

Imagine a world without roads, toilets, or even towns! The Romans brought us many amazing inventions, including takeout food, shopping trips, and toothpaste. Discover how the past has shaped the way we live today. From School Library Journal: Gr 2-4–Short, two-page chapters provide straightforward facts about these featured topics. Each book contains two- to three-sentence paragraphs along with color photographs of places and artifacts on each spread. Egyptian Treasures describes antiquities and customs. Extreme Places presents a variety of radical locations inhabited by humans, such as the coldest and hottest, wettest and driest, most polluted, most remote, and earthquake and flood zones. Roman Soldier's Handbook provides reenactments of battles and prepares readers as if they were to join the Roman Army and what to expect during their term of service. What the Romans Did for the World explains that the ancient Romans introduced the Celts to their language, eating utensils, baths, and toilets. It includes present-day photos of some historic architecture and objects. Sporadically placed factual tidbits jump off each page, making the books entertaining enough for pleasure reading. Perfect for beginners with no background on these subjects.–Janet Weber, Tigard Public Library, OR. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
