With the extensive amount of information available online today, it is often difficult to determine the validity of facts presented and even more challenging to put them all into perspective. In Voyage without a Harbor, author David D. Peck seeks to provide both the validity and perspective from a historical standpoint.A professor of history at the college level for more than twenty years, Peck presents an accessible narrative overview of Western civilization from the Stone Age to the end of the Cold War in the late twentieth century. Voyage without a Harbor focuses primarily on providing fundamental guidance, information, and insight on how civilization developed, but also occasionally delves into deeper factual presentations combined with some examples drawn from the humanities.Geared toward high school seniors and college freshmen, this study offers a concise look into the history of Western civilization with lists of suggested resources and reading for those seeking more in-depth discussion.''¦highly accessible and eminently readable.' ''John D. Young, PhD, Flagler College.''¦well-balanced'¦with fascinating tidbits scattered throughout.'''Ryan Patrick Crisp, PhD, BYU-Idaho.
