About the Edition. Uses a fictionalized account of the life of the steward of an important estate to describe the ancient Italian city of Pompeii and what happened . Two thousand years ago, by the Bay of Naples, the town of Pompeii was completely buried under volcanic ash and molten rock when the volcano Vesuvius exploded. About seventy years ago, archaeologists uncovered one of the finest houses in the city, along with three skeletons: one of a man, one of a young girl, and one of a dog. The 79 CE eruption of Italys Mount Vesuvius buried the nearby town of Pompeii in ash and rock, simultaneously destroying and preserving the city and its residents.
