Steven Pressfield is the author of The Legend of Bagger Vance, a mystical golf novel currently under option with Robert Redford and Jake Eberts (Dances with Wolves, Driving Miss Daisy) for feature film adaptation. He makes his home in Malibu, California.
In Gates of Fire, Steven Pressfield brings the battle of
Thermopylae to brilliant life, and he does for that war what
Charles Frazier did for the Civil War in Cold Mountain. When
you finish Pressfield's work, you will feel you have fought side by
side with the Spartans. This novel is Homeric.
