His acclaimed history explores how the intrepid seafarers of eighth-century Greece sailed around the Mediterranean, encountering strange new sightsvolcanic mountains, vaporous springs, huge prehistoric bonesand weaving them into the myths of gods, monsters and heroes that would become the cornerstone of Western civilization.From the Trade Paperback edition.
