Ancient Egypt Red Land, Black Land is an in depth summary of Egyptian every day life. Barbara Mertz makes it clear when she explains ways of life from child hood thru death. Also talking on the topics of pets, women, queens, kings clothing, jewelry, towns, houses, education, magic, religion, science, medicine, mathematics and the construction of the pyramids. One fact that astonished me was the time that this society existed 4,000 years. In this book they speak of two different lands, one being the Red Land and the other the Black. Each land had its perks. This book goes into depth about the tool and soils that each land had and what made one better than the other. Red Land, Black Land also speaks of the different time periods from the old to the middle and finally the new. Barbara describes each time period going into depth for example the end of their rule it spoke of Greek and Romans coming in and changing their way of life and society. If you are not interested in depth information and history about the Egyptians I would not recommend this book, However if you one, I can recommend this book highly. I enjoyed the description of their religion and the architecture. It was neat to see what they could build at the time with no heavy machinery, and the ways in which they praised their Gods was intense. There were things I enjoyed there were also things I did not. I did not like the sanitary systems; people were not able to beat fevers and sicknesses because of their lack of sanitary sources. Theses sickness can be cured easily today with medicines and cures that were not available at the time of the Egyptians.

At my school we learnd alot about Egypt. It was pretty fun. We did some projects to it. But we didn't get to do all of the projects. Our teacher was kind of angry beacause we did not learn much well. But it was not me. Our teacher meant everyone though.

If this type book is too studious for you read the Amelia Peabody books by Elizabeth Peters, who is actually Barbara Mertz. You will find her fiction well written and you will have the benefit of all her knowledge of ancient Egypt. She is an Egyptoloogist and a scholar and you will fall in love with Amelia.
