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 ancient Greece...
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.
