Before Atalanta became a Greek legend, she encountered a beast. Abandoned by her parents and raised by bears until the age of four, Atalanta has led a life of adventure. After her adoptive father is slain by a ferocious beast, the twelve-year-old Atalanta sets off on a journey of revenge, accompanied by the bear she treats as a brother. She discovers that a monster is terrorizing the land of Arcadia and that the king has assembled a party to track it down--led by the legendary huntsman Orion. Atalanta wins a place at Orions side, but the hunt for the beast is also a hunt to uncover the secret of her own past. And that may prove to be the greatest danger of all.This ebook features personal histories by Jane Yolen and Robert J.
