Against a superb landscape of mountains, beaches, villages, cities, and ruins, all bathed in the rich light of the Mediterranean, these twenty-four stories draw from the long oral and written evolution of the Greek literary tradition. Incorporating myths, the meditative tranquillity of the region, and a past full of struggle and civil war, these stories are arranged by geographical region for the traveller and provide an enriching odyssey through the Greek landscape and mind.
