Halliburtons second book recounts his journey through the Mediterranean in the shadow of his mythical hero. In Greece, Halliburton charged Mount Olympus in order to visit the gods that dwelled there- he swam the Hellespont as Byron had before him and journeyed on to Troy, where Odysseuss long adventure began. Sailing to Stromboli in the Tyrrhenian Sea- then on to the Bay of Naples, to Circeo--island of Circe--and Li Galli, the siren isles that shimmered off the Amalfi coast. Battling through the Straits of Messina, Odysseuss Scylla and Charybdis, he explored Sicily and Corfu before setting out for the shores of Ithaca, long-forgotten home for one, the end of an adventure for another.
