This early work by Eva March Tappan was originally published in 1908 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Story of the Greek People' is an educational children's book that details the important events in Greek history all the way from the beginning of the first Olympiad in 776 B.C. through to the death of Alexander in 323 B.C.. Eva March Tappan was born on 26th December 1854, in Blackstone, Massachusetts, United States. Tappan began her literary career writing about famous characters from history in works such as 'In the Days of William the Conqueror' (1901), and 'In the Days of Queen Elizabeth' (1902). She then developed an interest in children's books, writing her own and publishing collections of classic tales.
