Summary (From the publisher):

...Here, in all its original barbaric majesty (before the sophisticated Greeks neatened it up), is the supremely dramatic story of Jason and Medeia.

He is a hero in a panther skin, a chilly intellectual, a grandchild of death, a politician, a Westerner. She is passionate, intuitive, an Easterner, a grandchild of the Sun—and she loves this Jason to distraction.

Their story is an epic of busybody gods, befuddled brave heroes, exciting adventures, amazing landscapes, incredible sights (the spider-men, Jason's talking ship, fire-breathing bulls, Medeia's crazy-eyed sinister ravens).
