The voyage of Jason and the Argonauts and their hunt for the Golden Fleece is one of the most enduringly popular of all of the Ancient Greek heroic myths. Accepting the quest in order to regain his kingdom, Jason assembled a legendary crew including many of Greece's greatest heroes. With his band of heroes and demi-gods, Jason set sail on a journey across the known world. During their quest, the Argonauts faced numerous challenges and, of course, the fickle will of the gods in Olympus. The text is supported by numerous illustrations both classical and modern, including artwork plates especially commissioned for this work.
