Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 1864) is considered to be one of the greatest American authors of the nineteenth century. Born in Salem, Massachusetts, he used Puritan New England as a setting for many of his short stories, allegorical tales, and novels. The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne's masterpiece, has never been out of print since it was first published in 1850.

    " Hawthorne retells well known Greek myths in wonderful prose. The reader does feel he or she is at the Wayside Inn listening to the stories. "

    " This is a little book of Greek myths put into readable and fun terms for children. I am not generally interested in mythology, but this was a fun read. "

    " I read this aloud to the girls. It was nice to read something so well written for a change. The language was wonderful and the retelling of the greek myths included in the book was interesting because the story of Circe (from the Odyssey) was the only one with which I was very familiar. "
