Queen of Sheba by Naomi Lucks


Queen of Sheba by Naomi Lucks

The Queen of Sheba is celebrated by at least three of the world's great religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. As Queen Makeda, she is revered as the founding mother of the Solomonic dynasty of Ethiopia. The story of her journey over thousands of miles of desert to ask 'hard questions' of King Solomon of Jerusalem has inspired books, poems, operas, art, and even a circus act. She was called a wise woman, a demon, and a seductress. She was accepted without question as a real person for thousands of years, yet by the end of the 19th century, the lack of scientific proof of her existence led to doubts.Nonetheless, her legend has persisted since the 10th century BCE, compelling historians, archeologists, and scholars to search for the truth. In Queen of Sheba , read how archeologists are excavating an ancient temple in the desert of Yemen that may prove to be where she worshiped the moon god Almakah, and may hold the key to uncovering the truth about this intelligent, daring, and compelling queen.


The books are attractively laid out, with ample color photographs and maps that supplement the text... a solid series for middle and high school history collections... Recommended.
