Atalanta is the best hunter, swiftest runner, and the all-around most eligible bachelorette in ancient Greece. She's also a woman with a secret: a fortune-teller has given her a stern warning to never marry. When her father-a powerful king-insists that she choose a husband, she hatches a clever plan to hold onto her freedom. Will Atalanta be able to outrun her father's demands?

Editorial Reviews

"Along with 'celebrity' heroes like Hercules and King Arthur, these mythology-based titles delve into less obvious areas, focusing on figures such as Atalanta, Ali Baba, Isis and Osiris, and Sunjata, a warrior king of Mali. This mythological series is among the most varied and mixes fast-paced storytelling with pertinent historical facts, further reading lists, glossaries, maps, and pronunciation guides. A fun, inviting way to introduce students to the beliefs and histories of other cultures." --Book Links
