Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0670856797, Hardcover)One of the real larger-than-life characters of the 19th century, Heinrich Schliemann made his fortune in the Russian indigo trade and the California gold rush. He achieved his fame by uncovering the cities Troy and Mycenae. And if it wasn't the Troy of the Trojan War or the Mycenae of Agamemnon, as Schliemann claimed, the value of his discovery, in terms of archeology and pure treasure, is still indisputable. Like Schliemann of Troy by David Traill, Caroline Moorehead uncovers Schliemann's arrogance and his propensity to exaggerate, if not lie outright. But she's not so focused on his faults that she's blind to his strengths.
