City of the Seven Hills by S. B. Harding
This short history of Rome is part of a four book set, intended for middle school readers that introduces the major points of world history. Like most Roman histories written for younger students it focuses primarily on the Kingdom and Republican eras, and conveys all of the major legends and hero stories of the age. Harding is exceptionally good at conveying the essential stories of an era in concise, but engaging prose. An excellent introduction to Roman history for novices.
