About the Author:

No Bio

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6 Although there are many books for children about ancient Egypt and mummies, only Pace's Wrapped for Eternity (McGraw, 1974; o.p.) is as thorough as Mummies, Tombs, and Treasure. Perl traces the history of the Egyptian cult of the dead from the first accidental mummifications to the elaborate and costly rituals practiced during the great reigns of Egypt. Readers learn how mummies were prepared and the rituals of mummification. Here too is information on what happened to the mummies after the fall of the Egyptian empire (many were ground into powder for use as a medieval medicine). Besides information about mummies, Perl gives a detailed account of ancient Egyptian history and religion, which makes this book an excellent resource for school reports on ancient Egypt. Although many of the black-and-white photos have been used before (see McHargue's Mummies Lippincott, 1972; o.p.), they do elucidate the text. And while much of this information can also be found in other sources, many of them do not wrap up the subject nearly so well as this well-written and comprehensive book. Cathryn A.
