Summary "Among the many colorful and absorbing stories from the fabulous mythology of ancient Greece, few are as fascinating, exciting, and downright entertaining as the tale of the hero Jason and his quest to find the Golden Fleece. That skin of a magic sheep was thought to bring good luck, riches, and prosperity to whoever possessed it. This fleece supposedly existed in a faraway land said to be filled with terrifying monsters and other dangers. Yet the young and fearless Jason did not flinch when a power-hungry king challenged him to search out and bring back the magical object. After building a fast and sturdy ship named the Argo, Jason gathered a crew of other heroes. One of them was the mighty Heracles, whom the Romans called Hercules. Jason and his Argonauts set off on what would prove to be one of humankind's most fateful voyages"-- Provided by publisher.
