'Chasing Odysseus is an alternative telling of both the Iliad and the Odyssey. The story pulls together the tales of Homer and the Greek mythology against which the great bard told those tales. It answers the question of how the Trojans survived a ten year siege behind the walls of the citadel, by using the actual myth of Agelaus the herdsman to create a forgotten people, the Herdsmen of Mount Ida. Chasing Odysseus weaves into the Odyssey - it does not contradict Homer but provides another story within the Greek epic.'
