Let’s face it, learning Latin takes time. It also demands a great amount of reading. Anyone setting out to read a lot of Latin is immediately faced with a special obstacle: there are very few full-length intermediate-level Latin stories even faintly resembling a modern novel with its continuous story pulling the reader through to the last page.
We are thus pleased and honoured to be able to present this almost forgotten gem, Ad Alpes – a Tale of Roman Life by H. C. Nutting. It is a long, continuous and varied narrative in excellent Latin, tracing the journey of a Roman family through the ancient world. Its overarching frame story contains within it many shorter stories, each of which is full of interest.
This delightful book is a valuable supplement to any intermediate course because it provides the learner with what is often missing – lots of extensive reading. It helps build language ability and confidence and, above all, it is fun!
