The Myths of the World series explores the mythology of some of history's greatest civilizations. Each book opens with a brief look at the culture that created the myths, including its geographical setting, political history, government, society, and religious beliefs. Next come the stories themselves. Each one of the half dozen or so myths per title has been retold by critically acclaimed author Virginia Schomp. Based on a variety of traditional sources, the new versions are fun and easy to read. At the same time, they remain true to the spirit of the ancient tales, preserving their magic, their mystery, and the special ways of speech and avenues of thought that made each culture unique.
