Aquí os dejo la sinopsis:
“An amazing narrative vehicle for the display of … a fairly complete composite of the life and times of which the author writes.” —The Chicago Daily Tribune
“By hybridizing a Middle-Eastern travelogue with an Alexandrine comedy of manners, the author has produced a specimen only slightly less rare then [sic] elephants in Westchester—to wit, a historical novel with a sense of humor.”—The New York Times
What finer way for Alexander the Great to honor his old tutor Aristotle than to send him an actual Indian elephant?
After capturing a magnificent specimen from an Indian ruler, Alexander tasks Leon of Atrax, a cavalry commander, to deliver the animal to Aristotle in Athens. Leon leads a motley crew of companions (and the elephant) from India to Greece, encountering all sorts of dangers and adventures while attempting the long and arduous journey.
