His 1986 book The Jason Voyage: The Quest for the Golden Fleece, planted the seed that would eventually become this story. things Russian (and apologies to him as well for once or twice ignoring his sage advice); Graham Brown, Thomas Greanias, David Lynn, Golemon, Theresa Danley, and Jeremy Robinson for saying nice things about this book and being willing to let me put their names on the cover; and always, always, always, I want to thank my long-suffering family for all.

Also, Percy, Annabeth Chase, and Tyson go after Grover in a desperate rescue for the satyr and in Plan B, the Golden Fleece, 'disturbing' Clarisse, who didn't want them interfering in their quest.

5 stars for the tale; 3 stars for the Kindle version. I am a fan of Severin's voyaging and did not want another book around so I bought the Kindle version which had many flaws, but not enough to spoil the story. Early on, there were several sentences that were either missing or chopped up and which appeared out of order. Then everything went well until the straits, where there were references to "cargo" that whatever OCR was used to create the Kindle version turned into "Argo". These flaws were irritating in themselves, but the main problem with me is that they reduced my confidence in the accuracy of the version and made me wonder if I missed something important. The photos were at the end and appeared fine.

How does he decide which challenge to take on? This my next to last Severin adventure. I'm not what to do for exciting reading after all have been read. It's another of his books that takes you onboard his boats for an adventure of a lifetime.
One hint: Follow the path as best you can on Google Earth. It makes the adventure far more personal. I've done that with everyone of his adventures.

Tim Severin is the man every man would love to meet. Affable in writing, detailed in observation and description, and a consumate sailor, Severin weaves a spectacular tale of adventure and exploration. Recounting the historic voyage of Jason and the Argonauts, history is brought alive and vivid in Severin's book. I have read his other travelogues and he is doubtless among the best I have ever read. Regardless of whether you are an afficionado of sailing adventure or not, you'll love this. Buy it. Keep it.

I love Tim Severin's books. What an amazing life he has led. Some of the adventures, such as this one, are mind blowing. Building a replica of the ancient boat firstly and then assembling a team to row the same boat from Greece through the bosphurus to Georgia was awe inspiring. He is never boring, supplying enough detail to keep one interested, while making one wish you had had the idea first. A reminder to everyone to always live life to the fullest as he obviously does

Another good read from Tim Severin....interesting insights into the construction of a bronze age vessel... insights into the probable origin of some of the associated mythology...the resurrection of almost lost naval construction skills...reading this book one can only marvel at the early intrepid voyagers venturing into the unknown with only muscle and courage to aid them...truly this was the age of heroes

This is a nice book about a recreation of the classic tale of the Argonauts. You get great detail on the building of the Argo and incredibly difficult the trip was from Greece to Soviet Georgia. The author really takes you inside the trip and provides plenty of the details about the pain, blues and agony (thank you Dusty Rhodes) that they all went through.
