Geared toward young readers, the classic retellings of stories from ancient myth presented in this volume center on the Argonauts' quest for the golden fleece. Generations have thrilled to compelling renditions of the adventures of heroic Jason and the sorceress Medea, mighty Heracles, the minstrel Orpheus, and other legendary figures. Author Padraic Colum, who was active in the Irish literary renaissance and a founder of Dublin's Abbey Theatre, was also a popular children's writer. Skilled at recounting tales in a manner that attracts and holds children's attention, Colum possessed a poetic style that continues to enchant audiences of all ages. His stories of Atalanta the huntress, Perseus and his bride from the sea, Theseus and the Minotaur, and other fantastic characters are complemented by 40 evocative illustrations.
