  • Description or summary of the book: Pliny the Younger (C61-112AD) was a Roman official and writer. He has become famous for his two letters to the historian Tacitus, which detail his eye-witness account of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD which took the life of his uncle, Pliny the Elder.'Ashen Sky' presents readers with a translation of Pliny's letters, accompanied by stunning black-and-white engravings by acclaimed artist Barry Moser, that magnificently illustrate the various descriptions found in the letters. Also included is a brief description of the eruption of the volcano, concise biographies of Tacitus, and of both Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger, as well as a summary of how the texts of the two letters have survived until today.
