The Spartan (Caroline Dale Snedeker) - Paperback
The Spartan is the story of Aristodemos, the only survivor of The Battle of Thermopylae. Follow Aristodemos through his childhood in Athens and Sparta until the great battle is fought. Because he survived the battle when Leonidas and his 300 Spartans perished heroically, Aristodemos is cast out and disgraced by Sparta. Throughout his life, until his valiant death, Aristodemos searches for redemption for his disgrace. His life touches the lives of Miltiades, Aeschylus, Aristides the Just, Leonidas and Pindar. This gripping, thrilling story of love, hope, despair, and final resolution at the battle of Plataea will excite and touch each reader, and help to instill a greater understanding of Athenian and Spartan life.
