In Search of A Homeland
The Story of The AeneidBook - 2001
Taking his old father on his back and his young son by the hand, Aeneas flees the sacked city of Troy, entrusted by his goddess-mother, Venus, with a daunting mission: Find a new homeland for his people. It is an arduous journey. At every turn, unimaginable dangers await him: terrible monsters and giants; supernatural hazards sent by the enraged goddess Juno; and worst of all, an eerie, death-defying descent into the Underworld, where he will be allowed a glimpse of his Roman descendants' glorious future.
