Metals and monsters; quests and adventures
The dazzling companion volume to the bestselling Mythos. There are heroes- and then there are Greek heroes. Filled with white-knuckle chases and battles, impossible puzzles and riddles, acts of base cowardice and real bravery, not to mention murders and selfless sacrifices.Few mortals have ever embarked on such bold and heart-sitting adventures, overcome myriad monstrous perils, or outwitted scheming vengeful gods, quite as stylishly and triumphantly as Greek heroes. Join Jason aboard the Argo as he quests fort he Golden Fleece. See Atalanta- who raised by bears- outrun any man before being tricked with golden apples. Witness wily Oedipus solve the riddle of the Sphinx and discover how Bellerophon captures the winged horse Pegasus to help him slay the minster Chimera. Heroes is the story of what we mortals are truly capable of- at our worst and our very best.
