This action-packed retelling of the myth of Orion the Hunter has a modern feel with narrator Benjamin Soames' easygoing performance. Orion is the greatest hunter in the world, a giant whose skill is matched only by his arrogance. Soames narrates the hunter's adventures with great energy, and he steadily builds up to Orion's eventual doom at the hands of the goddess Artemis, whom he tries to take by force. The result of Orion's misguided actions will reveal to listeners the reason why the constellation of Orion is perennially chased after by the constellation of Scorpio.
This is a story from the More Tales from the Greek Legends collection.
Bellerophon and the winged horse Pegasus launch into the blue sky in search of the dreaded three-headed Chimera, but will success go to the hero's head? Orpheus, devastated by the death of his wife, Eurydice, dares the dangers of the kingdom of the dead in an attempt to bring her back to life. Echo loves Narcissus but he only loves himself: a story that can only end in sadness. These and other colourful legends from Ancient Greece are retold in lively form by Benjamin Soames, with classical music providing further excitement.
