This is the exciting story of Odysseus's famous journey. After the fall of Troy, Odysseus sets sail for his island kingdom of Ithaca, but his voyage will take ten whole years. He has to face many dangers: the one-eyed giant Polyphemus; Circe's enchanted island, and the sirens who luresailors 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 life in this critically acclaimed, classic retelling by Barbara Leonie Picard.
