Description:     

Homer’s Odyssey is one of the greatest stories in literature—the epic tale of the return of Odysseus to his home following the Trojan war.

After nine years of siege and fighting, the Greeks are finally returning home. However, one of the Greek heroes, Odysseus, offends the Sea God, who for ten years sends storms and waves to keep him from arriving home. In this thrilling story, we follow Odysseus’s trials and adventures as he faces one danger after another on his long journey.

In Isabel Wyatt’s retelling of this magnificent adventure, we find all the wonderful storytelling skills for which she is well known. This is the first publication of this work.
