This book contains one of the most famous literary works in history, "The Odyssey" rendered into beautiful English prose. This book is annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer.
This is the story of Homer, a special dog. It is loosely based upon the original story of the 'Odyssey' written by the Greek poet, Homer. Homer wanders the streets of Denver, Colorado, seeking a home with the help of his friend, Achilles: "With his blonde mane blowing in the breeze of a Denver October, Homer strolled around the wooden fence, inspecting its entire perimeter. He had been here for over nine months and had walked this fence many times. Finally he found it - the one small hole in the fence. He had discovered it two weeks before. Then it had been much smaller, but he had worked it with his teeth almost every day since. He lowered his head and began to chew." Thus begins the odyssey of Homer and his search for companionship and happiness.
