A story set in Ancient Greece. When news reaches Athens that Persian ships are about to invade Greece at Marathon, Philip knows that his uncle and grandmother are in great danger. As his brothers and father are busy preparing for war, he is the only one who can cross the mountains and warn his family. The race is on...but will he reach them in time?


Geoffrey Trease was a prolific writer, with over 100 books to his name, and has been translated into 20 languages. He is best known for his children's historical fiction.
