Early Modern Times (1600 to 1850) History is a story; isn't it time you read it that way? This engaging series presents world history in a narrative format.

Who was the Sun King? How did samurai become sumo wrestlers? What was the Black Hole of Calcutta? And why was a California town named Ground Hog Glory? This spirited reading of the third volume in Susan Wise Bauer's Story of the World series brings to life the stories and records of the peoples of the past. This volume covers the major historical events from the years 1600 to 1850--from Elizabeth the First to the gold rush in California.

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.
