In these vivid, true stories, Jim Weiss takes you back 25 centuries to Golden Age Greece. You’ll charge into land & sea battles to defend the world’s first democracy against a vast, tyrannical empire; attend the original Olympics; hear history’s most famous storyteller, Homer, spin his classic adventure, “The Trojan Horse;” laugh and learn with Socrates, the wisest (and funniest) man in Greece; and meet artists and authors, as well as typical families, in the rival cities of Athens and Sparta.
Jim Weiss’s “Courage and a Clear Mind” is sure to inspire your own exploration of the potential that lies within us all.
