Herodotus was an Ancient Greek Historian from the 5th Century BC, whose only known work "The Histories" is so wonderfully written and constructed - and so crucial to our understanding of that era, that he has become known as the 'Father of History'.

"The Histories" is a sprawling text that contains Herodotus' inquiries and explanations of the Greco-Persian wars, as well as an incredible wealth of geographical and ethnographical information about the various cultures and creeds of the ancient World.

This is an absolutely essential text for anyone seeking to understand this era - and this version has been compiled by and optimised for kindles and e-readers. It includes an active table of contents for ease of navigation, and features ten unique illustrations to introduce each of the nine books, plus a map of Herodotus' World.
