Ad Alpes follows a Roman family travelling from Ephesus via Rome to the Alps. On their journey, they tell each other stories in Latin from the rich fountain of Roman literature and the Bible. The book is both a novel with its over-arching narrative and Latin reader with a collection of interesting stories, fables, anecdotes and myths.
Ad Alpes provides the learner not only with over 200-pages of classical Latin but with the central stories and anecdotes of classical literature, from both myth and history. Thus anyone who reads and listens to the book so as to internalize the language will at the same time become familiar with the most famous passages from authors such as Livy, Horace, Suetonius, and Tacitus, to name but a few.
- Improve your Latin: 200 pages in a classical Latin style for extensive reading.
- Read and enjoy Latin: Interesting stories from classical authors and the Bible.
- Read without the dictionary: Full Latin-English vocabulary.
- Perfect for autodidacts, students and teachers.
||"I first found this almost-forgotten gem of a Latin reader in a second hand bookstore many years ago. It was the best Latin reader I had ever seen. Right away, I started recommending it as extensive reading material to my students. Finding copies of Ad Alpes, however, was a a real challenge. That’s why together with Johan Winge, we decided to make this fantastic Latin reader/novel widely available again. We’re now proud to present the new, revised edition of the 1928 gem Ad Alpes – A tale of Roman Life, written by Professor H.C. Nutting. We have retained the beautiful original layout but have corrected several typographical errors, and updated some aspects of the English translations."
