The ultimate travel book. I got it as a resource for my evening classes on Ancient Egypt. Anything involving Greece and the surrounding empires around 500 B.C., this is the book to read.

"During the fifth century BC, a small and quarrelsome band of Greek city-states united to repel a mighty Persian army. While the story of this heroic drama forms the main theme of Herodotus' narrative, the author's curiosity fleshes out the text with digressions, folk tales and stories."
