Full description for Herodotus
Herodotus, widely known as the father of history, was not only a historian but also a master story-teller, argues the author of this insightful book. James Romm gives general readers a fresh appreciation of the Histories and shows that Herodotus was more than a source of historical data-he was a masterful and artistic author who created a radically new literary genre.
