Über diesen Titel
In pre-Homeric times, the Greek heroes united one last time to hunt down the Boar of Kalydon. Three and a half millennia later, the hunt for the Boar of Kalydon is re-enacted, and once again re-told. In the final months of WWII, Greek partisans pursue their quarry, an SS officer, in the same mountains the ancient Boar of Kalydon once roamed. Witness to the hunt is Sol Memel, a young Rumanian-Jewish poet fleeing for his life. Sol has lost his family and abandoned his lover, Ruth. Sol's role in the SS officer's eventual capture and killing inspires him to rewrite the ancient myth as a poem. When Ruth reappears twenty-five years later and proposes a film based on the writing of the poem, the ghosts of Sol's wartime past materialise. And behind them stand the ghosts of ancient Greece, the long-dead heroes who hold the truth behind the story of the original hunt.From the Back Cover:
What really matters? The truth? Or what people think? This question plagues thirteen-year-old Sarah Revere, daughter of the famous patriot Paul Revere. Who fired the first shot at Lexington? Does Paul Revere know? Sarah struggles with these questions and looks back at all that has happened since her father began his series of rides for the patriots. Dr. Joseph Warren, a friend of her fathers becomes a part of the family watching over them during Paul Revere's frequent absences. But Sarah fears that Warren's best interest is in her stepmother. As Sarah is left with her own personal war.
