When events during the Peloponnesian War demand it, the three children of Leon and Elpinice are dispatched quickly from their home in Athens to take refuge in Sparta. During their sojourn there they learn much about Spartan customs and hear stories from Spartan history, which, when added to their personal experience of Athenian customs and stories of Athenian history, give a full picture of life in ancient Greece as children experienced it in the 5th century B.C. Numerous illustrations complement the text. Suitable for ages 9 and up.
