Myths and Legends of Ancient Greece and Rome
Visit the exciting days of Ancient Greek and Rome, when powerful gods played, and people were the pawns. As the gods and Titans who ruled over ancient Greece and Rome plotted and planned and interfered in the lives of mortals and heroes alike, wise leaders, power-hungry dictators, horrible monsters, wild satyrs and mere humans became their playthings in their games of love, lust, war, and ordinary things.
You’ll read about Hermes, the fleet-footed messenger, and the all-powerful King Jupiter, who held dominion over the sky. You’ll meet the wily Titan Cronus and his mother Gaia, goddess of the earth. You’ll travel with heroes like the resourceful Odysseus and the mighty Hercules, whose strength was unmatched by any mortal man. You’ll shrink from the terrible Minotaur, who stalked the passageways of the sprawling Labyrinth, and the three-headed dog Cerberus, who guarded the Underworld. In this fascinating volume you’ll be drawn into the lives and stories of the powerful ancient Greeks and their Roman counterparts
