This struggle between Greece and Rome lasted until 146 BC, the year of the sack of Corinth. This same year, Rome sacked mighty Carthage.

Clive Thomas’ Historical Novel Travels the Australian Outback With a Drover in “Sevengate: The Harvest.”
Rough adventure awaits in Sevengate: The Harvest, the second book in author Clive Thomas’ tales recounting life in Australia’s Outback over the past century.
The first book, “Thursday’s Child,” followed the memoirs of Peter Tobin, a foundling, drover, shearer, horse-breaker, soldier, and pastoralist who travelled throughout the Australian Outback in the late 19th and early 20th century. Tobin’s legacy continues in the novel Sevengate, which spans the years 1910 to 1974. Tobin’s story tells an important part of Australia’s past and the making of a diverse nation. It also details a drover’s hard life, survival in a tough climate, as well as fatal misunderstandings, sacrifice, and murder.
In the second book, the author gives a nod to historical fact, but inserts enough fiction to make life in the Outback come alive.
“This book is not only a fascinating read but offers a look at Australian history that will never come again. We are thrilled to announce its release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
