Jacob Abbott wrote many historical books for children. He was careful to ensure historical accuracy, and as he said himself in the preface to this book "Whatever of interest ... these stories may possess is due solely to the facts themselves which are recorded in them, and to their being brought together in a plain, simple, and connected narrative."This is the story of Romulus, the founding of Rome and the early years of its history, written in a way both readable and enjoyable for adults and children alike. (Summary by Ruth Golding)

Love librivox... But sometimes...

I love librivox and have listened to a lot of their audiobooks. However, sometimes you get a reader that is so bad you can't concentrate on the book. There are a few chapters in here that need to be redone.
