Some three thousand years ago, the warriors of Greece
journeyed to the ends of the earth in the quest for the
Golden Fleece. One woman fought alongside them.
When the king of Pagasae left his infant daughter on the
slopes of a mountain to die, he believed he would never
see her again. But Atalanta, against the will of the gods
and the dictates of the Fates, survived—and went on to
bring to life one of the greatest legends of all of
Teaching herself to hunt and fight, Atalanta is
determined to prove her worth to her father and,
disguising herself as a man, she wins a place on the
greatest voyage of that heroic age: the journey of Jason
and the Argonauts to the very ends of the known world in
search of the legendary Golden Fleece. But Atalanta is
discovered, and abandoned in the mythical land of
Colchis, where she is forced to make a choice that will
determine her place in history.
Here then is the legend of Jason and the Argonauts as
never told before: the true story of the princess who
sailed and fought alongside Jason and Theseus and Peleus
(father of Achilles), and who ultimately ran a race that
would decide her destiny. Based on the myths of the
ancient Greeks, For the Winner brings alive a
mythological world where the gods can transform a
mortal's life on a whim, where warrior heroes carve out
names that will echo down the ages—and where one woman
fights to determine her own fate.
