"Camp Half-Blood, Keeping Young Heroes Safe from Harm (Mostly) For Over Three Millennia"
"The landscape was dotted with buildings that looked like ancient Greek architecture--an open-air pavilion, an amphitheater, a circular arena--except they all looked brand new, their white marble columns sparkling in the sun. In a nearby sandpit, a dozen high school-age kids and satyrs plated volleyball. Canoes glided across a small lake. Kids in bright orange T-shirts like Grover's were chasing each other around a cluster of cabins nestled in the woods. Some shot targets at an archery range. Others rode horses down a wooded trail, and, unless I was hallucinating, some of their horses had wings."-An excerpt from Percy Jackson and the Olympians Book One: The Lightning Thief, by Rick Riordan, pages 61-62.
