This spirited reading of Susan Wise Bauer’s The Story of the World Vol. 3: Early Modern Times, Revised Edition brings to life the stories and records of the peoples of the early modern times. Now updated to correspond to the Revised Edition of the text (but it’s also still compatible with the original edition, since very few words were changed).
Who was the Sun King? How did samurai become sumo wrestlers? What was the Black Hole of Calcutta? And why was a California town named Ground Hog Glory? Listen now to get these answers and more! (Really; you just have to hear Jim Weiss say “Tokugawa” to be a complete human being.)
This Story of the World audiobook is a collaboration between Jim Weiss, whose voice is “liquid gold” (CNN TV), and Susan Wise Bauer, whose writing has been described as “timeless and intelligent” (Publishers Weekly). Listen along with the Revised Edition Text, as a supplement to a traditional history curriculum, or independently.
