LibraryThing Review

User Review  - auntieknickers - LibraryThing

The early years of human history seem to have less information than might be available, particularly spotty in Asian history and pretty much nothing about Africa south of the Sahara. Still, an interesting browse and a good place to see what was happening in a given year. Read full review
