The book uses histories and literature of classical writers, such as Cicero, Vergil, and Apuleius, as a tool to reinforce the ability to read Latin. The level of comprehension ranges from the easier to the challenging, and the book includes a dictionary at the end. The selections are printed in Latin and English, so that students with or without Latin fluency can enjoy the pearls of wisdom to be gathered from these primary sources. The compiler of this anthology chose selections that captivate the reader's imagination much as a contemporary story might do.
