Since this book reflects such widely differing aspects of mythic consciousness, it rounds out the whole subject of mythology in a completely unique manner. See more details below

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A former art editor of Time magazine, Eliot is a consummate storyteller who relates tales from his own childhood, as well as from around the globe. In the process, the common humanity of various people becomes apparent, and we learn that beings--divine, human, and natural--need one another. Eliot thus reveals important contemporary ecological messages held within these stories. Recommended especially for public but also for seminary libraries.
