The main frame story concerns a Persian king and his new bride. He is shocked to discover that his brother's wife is unfaithful; discovering his own wife's infidelity has been even more flagrant, he... More > has her executed: but in his bitterness and grief decides that all women are the same. The king, Shahryar, begins to marry a succession of virgins only to execute each one the next morning, before she has a chance to dishonour him. Eventually the vizier, whose duty it is to provide them, cannot find any more virgins. Scheherazade, the vizier's daughter, offers herself as the next bride and her father reluctantly agrees. On the night of their marriage, Scheherazade begins to tell the king a tale, but does not end it. The king is thus forced to postpone her execution in order to hear the conclusion. The next night, as soon as she finishes the tale, she begins (and only begins) a new one, and the king, eager to hear the conclusion, postpones her execution once again. So it goes on for 1,001 nights.< Less

Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Herodotus (/hᵻˈrɒdətəs/;... More > Ancient Greek: Ἡρόδοτος Hēródotos, pronounced [hɛː.ró.do.tos]) was a Greek historian who was born in Halicarnassus, Caria (modern-day Bodrum, Turkey) and lived in the fifth century BC (c. 484–c. 425 BC), a contemporary of Socrates. He is widely referred to as "The Father of History" (first conferred by Cicero); he was the first historian known to have broken from Homeric tradition to treat historical subjects as a method of investigation—specifically, by collecting his materials systematically and critically, and then arranging them into a historiographic narrative. The Histories is the only work which he is known to have produced, a record of his "inquiry" (or ἱστορία historía) on the origins of the Greco-Persian Wars, including a wealth of geographical and ethnographical information.

Marco Polo's Daughters--Discovery of the New World By Gunnar Thompson
Paperback: $18.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Marco Polo made four secret voyages to ancient America in the 13th and 14th centuries. The book is based largely on letters that Marco's daughters wrote about his New World adventures. Before he... More > died, the old man told his daughters about his secret adventures. Marco sailed with teams of Chinese, Mongol, Korean, Persian, and Syrian explorers on three voyages to America's West Coast. This was the very beginning of the Northwest Passage Legend. Marco's maps of Puget Sound and San Francisco were vital to the success of an expedition by Francis Drake in 1578. Yuan Chinese voyages set the stage for Zheng He's worldwide explorations. Chinese took home appaloosa horses from the NW coast; and Marco took back to Venice the first guns. He called the gun "a harquebus." Marco was not just a journalist, he was a highly-trained espionage agent. Authenticity of the letters has been confirmed by a raciocarbon test and assessment of imbedded clues.< Less

This was the beginning of the modern Arms Race. Explorers also took appaloosa horses from the American Indians back to China in about 1300 AD.< Less

African History Books have been written and rewritten thousands of times. But what is bizarre about all these African History Books is that they are divided into three groups: one that deals with... More > Colonial History, one that deals with Mediterranean History, and one that deals with Pre-history. The first one tells us about the Europeans all over the African continent. The second one tells us about the Kemets, the Persians and the Greeks in North Africa. And the last one tells us about primitive Negroes who did not themselves have any idea of the notion of History; so someone else has had to write their History in their place. There is no wonder that Basil Davidson has had to come to the embittering conclusion that what is referred to as African History today is nothing but “African History Without Africans” (1999). This is the book in which the true face of what may be referred to as African History is shown in full beam to a world that has cessed to believe in it. [View on www.lulu.com/content/4471308]< Less
