The Middle Ages (400 - 1600) History is a story; isn't it time you read it that way? This engaging series presents world history in a narrative format.

Who discovered chocolate? What happened to the Giant Fovor of the Mighty Blows? Why did the Ottoman Turks drag their war ships across dry land? This spirited reading of the second in Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the World history series brings to life the stories and records of the peoples of the Middle Ages. This volume covers the major historical events from the fall of Rome through the rise of the Renaissance.

This Story of the World audiobook is a collaboration between Jim Weiss, whose voice is “liquid gold” (CNN TV), and Susan Wise Bauer, whose writing has been described as “timeless and intelligent” (Publishers Weekly). It may be used along with the print book, as a supplement to a traditional history curriculum, or independently.
