Product description

This is the story of Helen and the judgement of Paris, of the gathering Heroes and the siege of Troy; of Achilles and his vulnerable heel, reared by the Centaur on wild honey and the marrow of lions; and, of Odysseus, the last of the Heroes, his plan for the wooden Horse and his many adventures on his long journey home to Greece. This title is presented with a beautiful introduction by best-selling author Michelle Paver, and additional endmatter including an author profile, who's who, activities, glossary and more.
