Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea: Why the Greeks Matter

Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea: Why the Greeks Matter - Thomas Cahill This is a great book to get someone started in historical thinking. The Hinges of History series should be required reading in high school history classes. This specific book contains a significant amount of useful information along with numerous citations and quotes from primary sources. It's also written in a very accessible, almost conversational style.
