Untangling the complex web of gods, monsters, and heroes that make up world mythology, this primer is a brisk introduction to the stories that have fascinated mankind for millennia. Overviews of Greek, Roman, and Norse myths are included here, as are foundational tales from Aboriginal, Sumerian, Egyptian, Mesoamerican, Maori, Indian, and Japanese cultures. Along with explanations of the symbolism behind the Western and Chinese zodiacs, here too are the timeless stories of the 12 labors of Hercules, the Ancient Egyptian god Osiris coming back from the dead, the Australian Walkabout ritual, the tragic downfall of the Ghost Dance, and Odin losing an eye to gain wisdom.
