The Lifeboat That Saved the World
From the best-selling author of The Ark Before Noah comes this ancient story of a man tasked with building a boat large enough to save all living things from a catastrophic flood.
The story was inscribed on clay tablets over four thousand years ago, long before it was written down in the Hebrew Bible as the story of Noah and the ark
It is told here from a young boy's perspective by Irving Finkel, the curator in charge of the collection of cuneiform clay tablets held at the British Museum in London, and who vividly brings ancient Mesopotamia to life.
