simplistic and somewhat religious

This story is very simplistic and is somewhat told from a religious point of view. Perhaps interesting for a first introduction to history.

Why has this book been changed?

I had this book as a 4th grade history text through Calvert School. I loved it. I found I could order it through Walmart, of all places! Then I saw that Audible offered it. I was delighted. However! Be forewarned that it has been edited. I'm sure it's more pc now but, what the heck?! This was originally published aft WWI. I think we're all capable of knowing there is a difference and we won't be offended. I can't handle it any more. I'm returning it.

missing content

I love this but for some reason chapter 90 is missing about two pages worth of content. that's really annoying since I had to pay for this audiobook. and I have no idea who to complain to.
