Description

Renowned mythologist Bernard Evslin's retelling of the perilous adventure of Jason and the Argonauts "This story begins very soon after the world began, when great raw things called monsters roamed the unfinished places eating whatever they could catch." So says Ekion, son of the god Hermes, as he relates the tale of the treacherous crusade of Jason and the Argonauts. When Jason, a prince with the gift of healing, is assigned a quest to obtain the golden fleece of the winged ram-which, once obtained, will set Jason upon his rightful throne as king-a fantastic adventure begins. In the vein of classic storytelling, mythologist Bernard Evslin offers his own masterful recasting of the famous tale of Jason, Medea, and the Argonauts, and follows the hero's journey to its startling and tragic conclusion.
