The story of Hercules is one of the most dramatic of the ancient Greek tales, loved by readers for its excitement and suspense. This novel captures the drama of the early tale and introduces us to Jason, an eleven-year-old who desperately wants to be less like his father and more like his great hero, Hercules.

Hercules and Jason face tasks far more challenging than most mortals -- or even Gods -- could complete. Among them they must slay a nine-headed serpent, tame flesh-eating horses, and capture a magnificent white deer. Each has his own reason for risking life and limb -- Hercules to escape a curse placed on him by Hera, Zeus's wife; Jason because he wants so passionately to become strong, brave and daring. Together they discover that strength and bravery are not the only paths to heroism.
