Today, the book showed up on Amazon for the first time! It’s so early in the process that there’s not much information on the page yet, but go visit it anyway:
History of the Ancient World.

And here’s the final cover: usually pulls its information from the Norton sales catalog, which I have not yet seen (they usually do send me several copies, so I’m guessing that it’s on its way). When it arrives, I’ll post the catalog page for comparison.

I’m in Seattle at the moment, visiting my brother and getting ready to drive up to British Columbia to speak at an education convention. Will post a report shortly. There are MOUNTAINS here!

Taking pictures out of the window instead of paying attention to the road…at least I remembered to bring the camera, for a change.

    Not sure if you will get this before you arrive in Kelowna but we are so elated you are coming to our convention. I pray you have a safe drive here and enjoy our mountains, there are lots of them.
    You should see all the pictures I took on our way to CA at Christmas, out the window while driving is GREAT!
    Looking forward to meeting you,

    Oh, how thrilling to see that cover. Congratulations for making it this far. Have a great time with your brother (get a portrait while you’re there) and enjoy the beauty of the northwest. I love B.C.

    Take care,

    It looks WONDERFUL!!!! And I was just about to say what Diane beat me to saying, which is to have your brother take a portrait of you while you’re there!

    Is Seattle as totally beautiful and amazing as they say? I’ve heard it’s just insanely beautiful. Too cool that you get to hang out there! You’re such a totally happenin’ gal. 🙂

    Now that is a classy-looking cover! And I see they squeezed some of that war-like painting on it, too. Like to see the spine, too.

  • Kate

    The cover turned out very nicely. It is classy and has that “Great Book” look. :+)

    You must feel a sense of accomplishment when you see this work is almost done. Congratulations to you!

    It is just perfect, Susan!

    Drive safely!!!

  • Steph

    What a beautiful trip that must be! I have always wanted to see the West coast. The cover is gorgeous. 🙂

  • Camy

    Great cover! It looks so *smart.* Enjoy the beautiful scenery. Say *hi* to all those West Coast Well-Trained Mind Board participants! Blessings.

    This is slightly off topic, but I attended your talk on teaching writing grade K-12 in Kelowna today. One overhead that you dispayed (with the incorrect sentences of students that were then placed on a chart)is not on your website. Could you please post it?

    Thank you Susan for giving me the tools to teach my children.



  • Mindy

    Looks great, Susan!!! I can’t wait to have it in my hot little hands!! Way to go.

  • Jessica

    Congratulations! I actually saw the book cover on as I was adding the revised edition of SOTW Vol 1. to my home library! LibraryThing is linked to Amazon. I got excited because I’ve been reading your blog sporadically and been following what you’re doing. Thank you and your family for all you have done and are doing for our Lord and education of us all. God Bless!
