Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Also in the spiritual adventure realm, Mythical Journeys, Legendary Quests: The Spiritual Search: Traditional Stories from World Mythology, by Moyra Caldecott, retells 16 myths from many ancient cultures ranging from Sumeria through Greece, Egypt, India, Scandinavia, Russia and Ireland. While the myths themselves are related in appropriately unsophisticated language, Caldecott's analyses of their themes, historical backgrounds and universal principles are incisive and informative. Unfortunately, Cheryl Yambrach Rose's garishly colored illustrations depict visionary experiences in almost hallucinatory terms.
