Overview

“There are about eighty pyramids scattered along the Nile,” writes Mildred Mastin Pace, “and other pyramids hidden beneath the sand, waiting to be discovered.” In this book, the author takes her readers on a journey into the past to meet Imhotep, the ancient Egyptian architect whose dream resulted in the world’s first stone building, Zoser’s Step Pyramid at Saqqara. There is the building of Cheops’s Great Pyramid to witness, as well as the assaults on its façade by the Caliph Abdullah al Mamun, and the savants who accompanied Napoleon Bonaparte’s troops, and the explorations of the adventurers and archeologists who fell under the spell. There is an account of the discovery in recent times of the oldest boat in the world and of the finding of a pyramid that restored a “lost” pharaoh to history. There is also a discussion of the pyramids of the American Indians. Mildred Mastin Pace rounds out her wondrous narrative by pondering the mysteries, superstitions, and special powers attributed to pyramids.
