Our Young Folks' Plutarch


Rosalie Kaufman adapted Plutarch's famous biographies for children curious to discover the deeds of the greatest leaders and military heroes of Ancient Greece and Rome.

A superb introduction to ancient times for the younger reader, Our Young Folks' Plutarch is presented in a lively, easy-to-read style that sacrifices none of the detail and accuracy for which the original biographer is renowned. Plutarch was one of the finest authors of his time; working in Greece in the 1st century AD, he had access to documents that have since been lost to time. His stories of how great leaders such as Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great rose to lead their countries are a source for many historians to this day.

Together with the most famous people from antiquity, we also learn about those important to Greek and Roman culture. Those who excelled at speech, such as Demosthenes, and those who oversaw great building projects, such as Pericles, are included. Readers will observe how the countries of ancient times grew stronger and larger, supported by the effort of their greatest generals and leaders, whose charisma and motivation shaped the destiny of all humanity.
