Riding the Wooden Horse tells the story of the various maneuvers of both Trojans in their city and the Greeks on the Dardan plain to end the stalemate between the two sides. The Greeks have Odysseus, the master schemer from Ithaca, forever scheming and looking for ways to delude the Trojans to their downfall. The Trojans have no one of such talents and must muddle along as best they can. The narrative also presents a host of females in Troy Helen, Andromache, Cassandra and others who would have been of enormous benefit to the Trojan cause, if the men had only listened to them. Vergil, the Roman poet who has been ordered by Emperor Augustus to write about Roman glorious beginning (the Aeneid) but who hopes the way may have another ending is also there. The fall of Troy is described in detail and what happened to the various characters on both sides of the War.
