9780785826491: Myths and Legends: From Cherokee Dances to Voodoo Trances

 Interest in mythology has grown over the years and we now realize that many of the ancient anecdotes in circulation, either through verbal storytelling, ancient script or paintings, have in fact assisted the human race in understanding the complex world we live in, even if they are not always factually correct or true. They have helped us mold societies and given people reason to live; they are the blocks that when linked together can help us find the answers we, as a human race, have been searching for. 

Myths and Legends is a hardcover volume with four-color photographs and decoration throughout, and will make an excellent addition to the library of any reader who cherishes stories from the past and viewpoints of differing cultures. The book groups the world's myths into four geographical regions in order to provide an easy-to-follow structure. Myths from neighboring countries often share distinct similarities, but it should be noted that many of the cultures featured here were separated through vasts periods of time. Many of the cultures that produced these works have themselves long since vanished but, through the myths and legends presented here in this collection, the gods and demons that sprang from their imaginations—and maybe even their realities—live on.

Descripción Chartwell. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Estado de conservación: New. The impulse to create myths is inherent in all of the world's cultures, and the similarities in theme between these tales reveal some basic truths about mankind. Profusely illustrated with photographs and period art, this truly worldwide anthology provides an overview of the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths, but also delves into the sacred stories of the Americas, as well as Celtic Britain, Africa, the Middle East, China, and the South Pacific. Here are such heroes as Hercules, Thor, King Arthur, Robin Hood, and Gilgamesh, as well as such fearsome creatures as Sasquatch, the Sphinx, and the Loch Ness Monster. Also included here are compelling creation myths from Egyptian, Japanese, Polynesian, and Aboriginal cultures. 192. Nº de ref. de la librería 62821
