The Odyssey has always been one of my favorite stories and I've studied pre-classical Mediterranean culture, but I'd never thought about the stories from the Odyssey in a geographical context. Huler explains the controversy surrounded Odysseusian geography as well as his reasons for choosing the locations he visited. He also reviews the stories of the Odyssey and the historical controversies surrounding the Trojan War and Homer. An excellent book that I thoroughly enjoyed, though it made me nostalgic for the summer I spent in Greece.
