Description

Homer's Odyssey is one of the greatest stories in literature, the epic tale of the return of Odysseus to his home following the Trojan war.

After nine years of siege and fighting, the Greeks are finally returning home. But one of the Greek heroes, Odysseus, offends the Sea-God, who sends storms and waves to keep him from arriving home for ten years. In this thrilling story, we follow Odysseus's trials and adventures as he faces one danger after another on his long journey.

In Isabel Wyatt's retelling of this magnificent adventure, we find all the wonderful storytelling skills for which she was famous.

Ideal for Class 5-6 (age 10-12) in the Steiner-Waldorf curriculum.
