Book Jacket synopsis: The world has long told the story of Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun. The wax holding his feathers in place melted, the story goes, and he met his end by plunging into the sea. The tragic tale is meant as a warning: we must never fly too high or too low, or else risk peril. But few know the true story behind the cautionary tale repeated for centuries in poem and song. Icarus did not drown when he fell from heaven. He went on to write his own song.
