Description:

A treasury of tales from ancient myth and legend, this collection was assembled and recounted by a beloved storyteller. All of the legendary heroic and tragic figures of antiquity appear here, in myths derived from Egyptian, Babylonian, Persian, Hebrew, Hellenic, Latin, Celtic, Nordic, Mesoamerican, and other traditions. Larger-than-life figures populate these stories--Isis and Osiris, Gilgamesh, Hercules and Pandora, Loki, and Quetzalcoatl. Once regarded as sacred, these tales continue to form integral elements of their native cultures and to resonate with a deep human significance. A perfect book to inspire passion for mythology, it can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. xxvii+291pp. 53/8 x 81/2. (USO)
