World of Myths and Legends


    In this collection of mythical stories from around the world, we discover the spirit ancestors of the aborigines of Australia, and meet Mictlan, the lord of the Aztec land of the dead. Myths and Legends from cultures as far and wide as the Yoruban religion of Africa and the Mandans of North America are collected here. Alongside the text, insert boxes highlight and describe the country of origin. Amazing full-colour artwork brings to life the astonishing tales of gods and monsters, while illustrated artifacts show the original paintings, carvings and sculptures which served as one of the sources of our knowledge about these myths and legends. This work features four full-colour booklets, each telling a unique story, and includes full glossary and index.
