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.
'''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
