Summary, etc.: "The mythical character the ancient Greeks called Odysseus and the Romans called Ulysses is a true hero for the ages. The tale of his adventures has been retold countless times over the centuries. Yet it remains as exciting as it was when the Greek storyteller Homer first recited it close to three thousand years ago. In the great epic the Iliad, Odysseus is one of the Greek kings who attack the famous city of Troy. After winning the Trojan War, Odysseus and his soldiers encounter a terrible storm and their ships are blown off course. Lost, they wander from one strange and dangerous place to another for ten long years. As told in Homer's immortal epic, the Odyssey, they fight one-eyed giants, zombie-like cannibals, and other frightening monsters. But the clever and brave Odysseus never gives up hope of returning to his beloved home and family."-- Provided by publisher.
