This powerful story is a retelling of the classic Greek myth about the intervention of the goddess Artemis in the life of a young woman. Atalanta, the great hunter and runner, when forced to choose a husband, insists that any man who wishes to wed her must first defeat her in a race -- or die by her hand.
