This should be required for all new Freemasons!

I learned so much history from this book! It was more educational then I could have ever hopped for. This book is great for Freemasons of many years, new Freemasons, Freemasons looking to join other Masonic groups or just the general public who want to know more about freemasonry or for people who may want to join a lodge.
