Odysseus (oh-DISS-ee-us) was one of the ancient Greeks' most famous and beloved heroes. The ancient Romans, who admired and eagerl...y copied Greek culture, were fond of him too. They called him Ulysses (yu-LISS-eez). Also beloved by the Greeks and Romans was the great Greek poet and story-teller Homer (HO-mer). He wrote at length about Odysseus in two superb epic poems. The first, the Iliad (ILL-ee-ud), tells about the tenth year of the siege of Troy, a wealthy city in western Anatolia (what is now Turkey). The rulers of several Greek kingdoms made war on and eventually captured Troy. Among those kings was Odysseus, who ruled the Greek island realm of Ithaca (ITH-uh-kuh). Homer called him a very ""capable man who journeyed across the world after seizing the proud fortress of Troy."" That fateful, ten-year-long sea voyage is the subject of Homer's other masterpiece, the Odyssey (ODD-iss-ee). During the journey, Odysseus ""endured numerous hardships,"" Homer said. He ""fought to stay alive and to bring his shipmates home."" In this retelling of some of the famous tales of Odysseus, author Don Nardo brings these myths to young readers. read more
In the fabulous annals of ancient Greek mythology, few characters were as famous as Jason (JAY-sin). He appears in several myths. ...But his most renowned deed was finding the Golden Fleece. That gleaming hide of a special, magical ram long rested in Colchis, a remote land located on the Black Sea's northern coast. Jason and the men who accompanied him on his quest became known as the Argonauts. This was because their ship was the Argo, named after Argus (AR-gis), the man who built her. read more

Zeus (ZOOS) is a name that many people today recognize. When someone asks, ""Who was Zeus?"" the answer is often something like, "..."Um, wasn't he the leader of the Greek gods?"" Another common response is, ""He's the dude who threw thunderbolts at people!"" It is not surprising that at least this much about him is fairly well known. After all, images from Greek mythology are widespread in modern books, graphic novels, TV shows, and movies. Beyond that, however, most people today know very little about Zeus. This is also not surprising. More than sixteen centuries have passed since the Greeks and Romans actually worshiped him. (The Romans called him Jupiter, pronounced JU-puh-ter.) In those days, almost everyone was very familiar with the many stories about his deeds and adventures. Today, those tales are called myths. And their details are known to only to a small minority of the population. Those who do take the time to learn about Zeus and his exploits, however, are never disappointed. They find that he was not only one of the most important gods in human history. He was also an extremely colorful and entertaining character. read more

Today Greek mythology serves many purposes. People still read these stories with great interest and enthusiasm. Some of the storie...s have even been made into movies, television shows, and comic books. Many versions simply retell the old myths while others use the original myths as a jumping-off point for new tales. Athena, on the other hand, was a whole different story. Instead of feeling envious of others, she inspired those who worshipped her to be brave and resourceful like she was. She wasn't as pretty as Aphrodite. But she was striking in other ways. She is said to have had piercing grey eyes. She also wore a plumed helmet and carried a shield. This represented her role as a protector of the ancient Greeks. Many drawings depicted her with an owl on her shoulder or a coiled snake at her feet. Athena was also a clever inventor. She is said to have created numbers, musical instruments like the flute and trumpet, and the plow. Just the way she carried herself made her look strong and confident, which was beautiful in a way that Aphrodite just couldn't manage. This story of Athena will introduce middle grade readers to the famous legends. read more
