This is the exciting story of Odysseus's epic journey home. After the fall of Troy, Odysseus sets sail for his island kingdom of Ithaca, not knowing that his voyage will take all of ten years. Along the way, he is to face many dangers, including the one-eyed giant Polyphemus, Circe's enchantedisland, and the sirens who lure sailors to their death. He even journeys down into the underworld and meets the dead Greek heroes. And all the time, his wife and son are waiting, hoping against hope that he will come and help them face the men who have invaded their home.Homer's great epic poem is brought to pulsating life in this critically acclaimed, classic retelling by Barbara Leonie Picard.
