This could be the story of a people's struggle for absolute safety inside a violent and harmful globe. A considerable number of miles long, the Wall was guarded by over a million soldiers manning thousands of forts and towers. Needing defense against the Mongols whose empire encompassed most of the known world, the Chinese built the Great Wall of China over 200 years.
The winner of numerous awards, this series is renowned for Elizabeth Mann's capacity to convey adventure and excitement while revealing technical information in engaging and easily understood language. Outstanding inside the genre, these books are sure to bring even probably the most indifferent young reader into the worlds of history, geography, and architecture. The illustrations are lavishly realistic and appropriate in detail but do not ignore the human element.
