Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-These welcome additions to the popular series combine wonderful photography with informative texts that are succinct and easy to read. They provide adequate introductions to their respective subjects and should encourage further exploration. Castle looks at European fortifications, Byzantine and Muslim-influenced constructions of the Crusades, and Japanese strongholds and defense strategies through photographs of architectural features, designs, and weapons. Everyday life is also documented with pictures of artifacts and people in period costumes. Beth Smith's Castles (Watts, 1988) is a good source for more extensive reading, including some tidbits about haunted castles. Viking presents an overview of this culture from music to mealtime, social hierarchy, to the more violent aspects of their explorations and expansions into new territories. Fascinating photographs of ships, weapons, and artifacts will attract reluctant readers. Hazel Mary Martell's The Vikings (New Discovery, 1992) is one of the more recent titles that can be used for further study.-Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukee, OR

    wonderful resource for studying the Vikings

    This is one of the "DK Eyewitness Books." When our younger son Jeremy was in grade 5, he was studying world history that year, and we supplemented the "textbook" (Investigating World History, which had been given to us by friends in Dayton, OH, and which we used with Mark earlier) with various nonfiction books about ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and now this one about the Vikings. With lavish full color photographs of people dressed in Viking attire, as well as Viking ships, houses, and other artifacts, this book helps us to visualize what the Vikings and their lives were really like. There are some 137 other "DK Eyewitness Books" listed. While Dorling Kindersley books are generally very good, highly recommended for visual appeal, and used by many homeschoolers in their curriculum, and we found nothing objectionable in this book, it is good to keep in mind that DK is not necessarily a "Christian" publishing company. In fact, one of the other titles listed is Evolution and another one entitled Prehistoric Life shows an "ape-man" on the cover.
