I first came across this book in my senior english mythology class. It became our textbook and core reference to almost all the material we covered that year. The author gives you a wide variety of cultures to learn from and the selected myths are outstanding. It gives you a sense of how the world believed. You can read about multiple cultures creation stories, ends of the world, and most eerily of all...almost every culture has a flood story. This is not formatted for a high school class, so don't think the writing is dull or bland. Enjoy learning about a variety of ancient cultures from as far East as China and as far North as the Norsemen. You wont be disappointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
