The Odyssey is the story (a collection of short stories, really) about how King Odysseus and his men returned home after the Trojan War. It should have taken about a month for the king and his men to sail back to the kingdom of Ithaca, which was on the far side of Greece from the town of Troy. But it took Odysseus ten years to make the trip! That's how much trouble he ran into on the way. That's what happens, King Odysseus, finally realized, when you do not give the ancient Greek gods the respect they expect.
Thanks for visiting my website!
We like to think of ourselves as one of the cat-friendliest corners of the internet, so stick around to find a good book , catch up with Homer and the gang, and read all about the latest happenings in the Cooper-Lerman househould -- preferably with a purring companion in your lap. I donate 10% of my royalties from Homer's Odyssey to organizations that serve abused, abandoned, and disabled animals; you can learn more about what some of my favorite volunteers are doing here . And feel free to drop me a line . I'd love to hear from you!
