Description: The long siege of Troy is over, and the city is in ashes.
Heroic King Odysseus can finally return to Ithaca, but the voyage
home holds terrors far greater than any he faced during the
Trojan War. Storms have thrust Odysseus's ship into unknown
waters. Here he must confront not only the blunders of his crew,
but far stranger perils: the one-eyed, flesh-eating Cyclops;
Circe, the enchantress with the power to turn men into swine; the
unnerving trip through the Land of the Dead. And when he finally
reaches home, he finds his palace overrun by loutish suitors
fighting to win the affections of his adored wife Penelope.
Odysseus has one last thrilling battle to fight before he can
reclaim his wife and his kingdom.
Rosemary Sutcliff's vivid transformation brings Homer's
Odyssey to life for a new generation. While simplified, the story
is never "dumbed down," making it an excellent introduction to
Greek mythology for readers of all ages.
This book is new.
