Why did the Mesopotamian hero Gilgamesh search for eternal youth?
What is the Chinese recipe for creating the universe?
How did the Blackfoot maiden Feather Woman turn the world upside down?
Whether it's the adventures of Greek gods and goddesses or Norse trickster tales, we all love to hear a good story.
Best-selling author Kenneth C. Davis gives readers a taste of these enchanting myths and the diverse people who tell them. In his trademark question-and-answer style peppered with entertaining sidebars and quotes, he also shows how almost every civilization's mythology shares common themes. Some stories celebrate the creation of the earth and the arrival of the first humans; others mourn a massive flood of destruction. Our wide world is linked together by the stories we tell.
