Black ships before Troy : the story of the Iliad
Look Inside. As the gods and goddesses of Olympus scheme, the ancient world is thrown into turmoil when Helen, the most beautiful woman in all of Greece, is stolen away by her Trojan love. Inflamed by jealousy, the Greek king seeks lethal vengeance and sends his black war ships to descend on the city of Troy. In the end, the whims of the gods, the cunning of the warriors, and a great wooden horse will decide who emerges victorious. She is universally considered one of the finest writers of historical novels for children. Not only has she broken the long tales into tolerable and interesting chapters, she has smoothed out the language while keeping true to all of the original drama and excitement. Readers will enjoy this classic adventure.
