This book gives an overview of ancient civilizations, starting with Paleolithic man (old stone age) and continuing through early civilizations in the Fertile Crescent (Mesopotamia, Persia, and Egypt), Indus Valley, the Levant (Phoenicians and Hebrews), Mesoamerica (Olmec), and South America (Chavin). It is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of photos taken by the author and members of his family during their extensive travels in the past 50 years.
I worked for 30 years as a defense consultant and military historian before taking early retirement and becoming a high school history and ESOL teacher. I started traveling to historic sites with my parents and I've been taking photos of my travels since I was 8 years old. I've been a part-time freelance photographer (mainly sports) for 10 years and have coached soccer teams for 20 years.
