My warmest thanks to you for recommending the book, Smithsonian Timelines of
the Ancient World. I went to my favorite book-buyers site,,
entered the title and they had a used copy for $15.00. The condition is
perfect. I'm sitting here enjoying it immensely not only for its wonderful
ceramics, but what an easy way to review history and pre-history. It appears
the Americas and Europe were a tad slow, developmentally compared to the
Near-East and Egypt. And for thousands and thousands of years.

Thank you for a special gift in guiding me to this book.
