Summary
Before Atalanta became a Greek legend, she encountered a beast . . . Abandoned by her parents and raised by bears until the age of four, Atalanta has led a life of adventure. After her adoptive father is slain by a ferocious beast, the twelve-year-old Atalanta sets off on a journey of revenge, accompanied by the bear she treats as a brother. She discovers that a monster is terrorizing the land of Arcadia and that the king has assembled a party to track it down-led by the legendary huntsman Orion. Atalanta wins a place at Orion's side, but the hunt for the beast is also a hunt to uncover the secret of her own past. And that may prove to be the greatest danger of all. This ebook features personal histories by Jane Yolen and Robert J. Harris including rare images from the authors' personal collections, as well as a timeline of the Heroic Age and a conversation between the two authors about the making of the series
