It publishes for the first time a book that explains the history of the Antiquity through the mountains
There are gods in the Olimpo? It is a book published by Librooks and relates the ancient history through the Olimpo, the Vesubio, the Sinaí, the Ararat or the Peñón of Gibraltar.
The classical Antiquity has explained of a lot of ways. Through his civilisations, of his myths, of the religion, the war or the art. This is the first time that somebody explains us the classical Antiquity through the mountains. This is a book to half way between the narrative of trips and the work of discovery and historical divulging. The trip of Héctor around the Mediterranean is, like the trip of Ulises, an itinerary of ascensión to the knowledge and a return to our origins.
Héctor Oliva (Terrassa, 1970) is journalist, professor and guide of trips. Been mad about of the geography and the history, is author of Passages to America (Prize Eurostars), Twenty histories of the American Barcelona and a blatant question and the book of mountains 17 Peaks, published also by Librooks. It has devoted three years to this project, because “no only treated to go up these mountains, that is the part more vivencial, but also of bucear in his past and investigate on hypothesis, legends and realities, and this carries his time if it wants to do with rigour”.
