The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

The Story of Damon and Pythias tells the story of two friends, Damon and Pythias, who live in ancient Greece. Damon is a loyal and trustworthy friend who would do anything for Pythias, while Pythias is a brave and adventurous man who loves to explore and discover new things. When Pythias is accused of plotting against the king and sentenced to death, Damon offers to take Pythias' place in prison until Pythias can return to stand trial. Although skeptical of Damon's loyalty, the king agrees to the deal, but warns that if Pythias does not return, Damon will be executed in his place.

The Story of Damon and Pythias is a timeless tale of selflessness, courage, and true friendship that has been retold and adapted in various forms throughout history. It is a must-read for anyone who appreciates a good story about the power of human connection and the importance of standing by your friends.
