This retelling of the Greek legend of Jason and the Argonauts emphasizes the characters rather than the quest itself. Hercules rescues Pylos, an apprentice shipbuilder, from his cruel master and secures him a job as the Argonauts’ ship boy. Pylos narrates the adventures during their three-year quest, including the sea battle with the Trojans, the harrowing passage through the clashing rocks, and the new and more dangerous challenge they face to obtain the Golden Fleece.
