Description - The Corinthian Girl: Champion Athlete of Ancient Olympia by Christina Balit

The brilliantly illustrated tale of one girl's epic achievement, from slavehood to champion athlete in the great Herean Games of Ancient Greece, held in the Olympic Stadium


Set in Ancient Greece, this inspiring story tells of a slave girl who became champion in the Heraean Games (the girls' and women's version of the Olympic Games) in the great stadium at Olympia. Born in Corinth, abandoned as a baby, she becomes a nameless slave until her strength and skill are noticed by her owner, a famous athlete. Her spirit and courage take her to victory in the Games, to freedom and to fame. Christina Balit's superbly detailed illustrations add a whole extra dimension to her story of one girl's life in Ancient Greece.
