"Dr. Schrader is a wonderful storyteller. This book plausibly recreates the situation of Tegean-Spartan conflicts in the time of Lycurgus. The characters are excellent and I was very involved, so much that I hated for the book to end." M.E. Anderson
"...here is another gem to polish and keep in my bookcase when I want a look back to Greece!" Amazon reviewer
Two cities at war
Two men with Olympic ambitions
And one slave -- the finest Charioteer in all Hellas.
This is the story of one man's journey from tragedy to triumph -- and the founding of the first non-aggression pact in recorded history: The Peloponnesian League.
