The Story of the Greeks

( 2 )

Overview

Although Greece (or Heĺlas) is only half as large as the State of New York, it holds a very important place in the history of the world.

It is surrounded on nearly all sides by the blue waters of the Med-it-er-ráne-an Sea, which stretch so far inland that it is said no part of the country is forty miles from the sea, or ten miles from the hills.

Overview

Although Greece (or Heĺlas) is only half as large as the State of New York, it holds a very important place in the history of the world. It is situated in the southern part of Europe, cut off from the rest of the continent by a chain of high mountains which form a great wall on the north. It is surrounded on nearly all sides by the blue waters of the Med-it-er-ráne-an Sea, which stretch so far inland that it is said no part of the country is forty miles from the sea, or ten miles from the hills. Thus shut in by sea and mountains, it forms a little territory by itself, and it was the home of a noted people.
The history of Greece goes back to the time when people did not know how to write, and kept no record of what was happening around them. For a long while the stories told by parents to their children were the only information which could be had about the country and its former inhabitants; and these stories, slightly changed by every new teller, grew more and more extraordinary as time passed. At last they were so changed that no one could tell where the truth ended and fancy began.
