Amazon.com description: Product Description: "Perchance he woke, and perchance he slept . . . "

His family dead, his country in ashes, the greatest hero of the ancient world collapses at the gates of the Temple of Aphrodite, where he gains a vision of the World's Desire: Helen, herself -- a friend of his youth, and the enduring love of his life.

Learning she still lives, Odysseus takes over the Black Ship of the Sidonians, armed only with sword and bow . . . and with a hunger in his heart that will drive him onto his final battlefield.

A collaboration between 19th-century literary giants Andrew Lang (1844-1912)and H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925), this 1890 novel is a tale of adventure, mystery, and undying love.
