About the Author:

Padraic Colum (1881-1972) was an Irish poet, playwright, author, a major leader of the Irish Renaissance, and a friend to James Joyce and William Yeats. Well versed in the old Gaelic myths as well as those of other cultures, he wrote a number of books for children that retell these tales. His book The Golden Fleece and the Heroes Who Lived before Achilles was a Newbery Honor Book, and he was awarded the Regina Medal for his distinguished contribution to children's literature.

Review:

'''To make stories read as if they were being told' has been Padraic Colum's aim and his achievement . . . A master storyteller at his best.'' --Kirkus Reviews, praise for the author
