Exciting adventure stories invite students to live in an Anglo-Saxon village, witness Charlemagne's crowning at St. Peter's, travel with Marco Polo, and share the glories of the Renaissance in Florence. Several times in each story, the reader must choose what to do next. Wrong choices could bring death from the bubonic plague, the contempt of a Chinese emperor, or death at sea from scurvy aboard Vasco da Gama's ship. Wiser choices may lead to happier lives as an Arab Physician, a great goldsmith, or a wealthy painter. 20 reproducible stories with illustrations, questions, and suggested activities. Grades 6-adult.
