THE HAND OF ZEUS, a new book for children of all ages, explains why the country of Greece is formed in the shape of a hand and how the country's exquisite islands were formed. No mythological accident, like all great Greek legends, THE HAND OF ZEUS resonates with an uncanny truth about the way people behave when they are given great gifts and how the greed and avarice of a few can transform the very nature of the land itself.

Written by the mother/daughter team of Katerina and Aegea Barclay and illustrated by Katerina Barclay, the two women gracefully weave a tale in the finest tradition of Greek legends. A gathering of symbols and images from ancient and modern day Greece, THE HAND OF ZEUS offers a universal tale where good prevails against evil and the darker side of human nature cannot destroy what is fine and good about humankind.
