1st printing Written by Ron and Justine Fontes. Art by Steve Kurth. The Greek goddess Demeter rules over a perpetual summer on earth, where crops, trees, and flowers grow in abundance. Persephone, her young and beautiful daughter, unknowingly attracts the attention of the lonely god of the Underworld, Hades. Hades kidnaps Persephone, and a frantic Demeter searches in vain for her daughter. Finally, Demeter retreats to her temple in mourning, and her sorrow causes crops to die and the ground to freeze. As the Greeks begin to starve, the other Olympian gods and goddesses try to convince Demeter to accept a marriage between Persephone and Hades. But Demeter will not give up her daughter forever to the Underworld! Softcover, 6 1/2-in. x 9-in., 48 pages, full color. Cover price $8.95.
