A biography of the archaeologist who discovered the lost city of Troy. Archaeologist? Mythmaker? Crook? This engaging, illustrated biography of Heinrich Schliemann - a nineteenth-century romantic who most believe did find the ancient city of Troy - reveals him to be a fascinating mixture of all three. From the time Heinrich Schliemann was a boy - or so he said - he knew he was destined to dig for lost cities and find buried treasure. And if Schliemann had his way, history books would honor him to this day as one of the greatest archaeologists who ever lived. But a little digging into the life of Schliemann himself reveals that this nineteenth-century self-made man had a funny habit of taking liberties with the truth. Like the famous character of his hero, the poet Homer, Schliemann was a crafty fellow and an inventor of stories, a traveler who had been shipwrecked and stranded and somehow survived. And Heinrich Schliemann was determined to become a legend like Homer - but in his own time. Following this larger-than-life character from his poor childhood in Germany to his achievement of wealth as a merchant in Russia, from his first haphazard dig for the city of Ilium to his final years living in a pseudo "Palace of Troy," this engrossing tale paints a portrait of contradictions - a man at once stingy and lavishly generous, a scholar both shrewd and reckless, a speaker of twenty-two languages and a health fanatic addicted to cold sea baths. Laura Amy Schlitz weaves historical facts among Schliemann's fanciful recollections, while Robert Byrd's illustrations evoke his life and times in wonderful detail.… (mehr)

Personal Response:
This is a very unique but fitting style of biography for a book about Heinrich Schliemann. Schlitz challenges many of the claims Schliemann made about his own life. She shows that people often exaggerate details so that they look better to other people. I loved how the illustrations were both humorous and informatory.

Biographical tale of an archeologist, who was less interested in the science and more in making a name for himself. Full of interesting trivia. ( )
