Ceation myths, quests, magic and gods, the etermal struggle between good and evil; these are some of the classic tales that still have an incredible influence over us today through movies, TV, comics, great fiction and stunning art. For many, the word 'mythology' brings to mind the classical traditions of the Greeks and Romans, but the whole of the ancient world was a fertile source of narrations. This new book brings to life a carefully crafted selection of the most enthralling myths and legends of eight traditions from around the world: Native American, Chinese, Celtic, Scottish, Classical Greek, Norse, Indian and African. With unforgettable characters, the tales are packed with the great themes of life: love, loss, revenge, the obsession with power and the everlasting contest between the wily and the strong.
