Overview

Dateline: Troy by Paul Fleischman, Gwen Frankfeldt, Glenn Morrow

The legend of the Trojan War, with its twists of tragedy and powerful portraits of human nature, has transfixed listeners and readers for thousands of years. Now the award-winning author of Bull Run retells Homer's epic poem the Iliad-- ingeniously juxtaposing each episode with newspaper clippings of modern events from the First World War through the Gulf War--to reveal astonishing parallels between the ancient and modern worlds. Young Adult.
