Synopsis

Cleopatra by Ron Miller, Sommer Browning

For more than 2,000 years, plays, poetry, movies, and television have portrayed Cleopatra as an ambitious woman who used her beauty to seduce powerful men like Julius Caesar and Mark Antony in a ruthless attempt to increase her own power and wealth. But is this the real Cleopatra or one invented by male historians anxious to discredit an intelligent, competent woman who was the last great pharaoh of Egypt? In Cleopatra , the true story reveals her to be a woman who used her great intelligence, imagination, personality, and indomitable drive in a tragic attempt to restore Egypt to the greatness it had known under the great pharaohs of old.

Reviews

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.
