I enjoyed this book. I like books from this period of history. Not a great book but a good book. I bought it because I liked Gates of Fire by the same author.


dissapointed storyline

by tonafernandez on Sep 30, 2009

have dropped this book several times, it just doesnt come easy to read, maybe i was looking for something else, after reading Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae an excelent book by Pressfield i was expecting something similar, unfortunately it is not what this book is


Well done

Well done and immaculately pieced together telling of a time of pre Western Civilization from which there is little written history. It makes the case for believing that the Amazons are no more mythology than the North American Mohican tribe. The parallels that Pressfield draws so beautifully between the culture of the Plains Indians and the tribes of the Black Sea Steppe bring to living, breathing and exquisite detail the sublime poignancy of human evolution and the inevitable clash of cultures that results in the ruin and extinction that evolution brings. I think it's one of his finest historical efforts.
