Oedipus on a Pale Horse, Journey through Greece in Search of a Personal Mythology
by David Sheppard
(Now available online.)
When David Sheppard was twenty years old, he was considering a literary life, kicked off by an extensive trip to Greece, when a potentially deadly encounter with his father derailed it and set him on a different course that resulted in a career in aerospace working Space Shuttle projects and NASA missions to the outer planets. Now thirty-two years later, he fulfills that life-long dream by traveling for two and one-half months alone in Greece. He has come prepared with a thorough knowledge of ancient myth, and an intimate knowledge of the archaeological landscape.
