Product Description

Pyramid is David Macauley's third book, it is an impressive look at what many considered to be among the most awesome of man's creations. Although the pyramids, temples amd tombs in this book are imaginery, they are, however, based closely on several of the pyramids and remnants of temples still standing in Egypt. Even though pyramids failed to protect their burial chambers from robbers they succeeded in making their creators immortal. They stand as a tribute to those who skillfully erected them, leaving behind them, something that would last forever. Recommended for ages 9 and up.
