Did you ever wonder what everyday life is like in Egypt? How did they build a pyramid? What do they eat? How did they dress?
Barbara Mertz has revised her Egyptology classic Red Land, Black Land. This book will give the readers detailed information on what is normal, everyday life for an Egyptian. If you ever had any questions about this subject, this book is sure to answer them.
Barbara Mertz takes the reader to many of the places we might have wondered about. She tells the readers what is like to be in one of their homes. We are told in explicit detail about their jobs. The reader will learn so much about their temples. We also get to see the everyday life of a commoner and a royal.
One of the things that impress me when Iím reading a book is the descriptive detail of the author. Barbara Mertz does an excellent job that gives the reader a vivid picture of what she is talking about. She does such a good job at it that you will feel like you are right there looking at the details.
This is not a difficult book to read. Red Land, Black Land is an interesting read, rich in history and detail of ancient Egypt. One might think that a book like this might be boring but believe me it is just the opposite. Be sure to add Red Land, Black Land to your reading list. It is a great read and you will learn some very interesting facts.
