Do you think being a Roman galdiator seems glamorous? Does exploring the wild frontier as an American pioneer sound exciting? Think again! As you'll discover in this lively series, history definitely has a dark side. These revised titles include helpful new features-along with the same hilarious illustrations, captions, and sidebars that have made this series a hit with kids everywhere!

At gladiator school, you'll be taught to fight, kill, and die in a suitably sporting manner to entertain the Roman crowds. If you survive, you could become a hero&mdashbut don't count on it.
