Two men with Olympic ambitions -
And one slave – the finest charioteer in Greece
Set in archaic Greece, and based on incidents recorded in Herodotus, this is the tale of a young man’s journey from tragedy to triumph – and the story of the founding of the first non-aggression pact in recorded history: the Peloponnesian League.
Award-winning novelist Helena P. Schrader has again created a novel full of rich and realistic characters while providing readers a remarkable insight into Archaic Spartan society. Well-researched and intelligently interpolated from recorded facts, Schrader’s Sparta is a refreshing change from the stereotypes encountered in much modern literature.
