The twenty myths in this book come from the great classic tales of Greece and Rome, and from Norse, Celtic, Egyptian, Native American, African, Indian and Asian traditions. At the heart of each is the story of a child hero.
Some of the stories are well-known-of Horus, of the Pandavas, of Heracles, and of Romulus and Remus. There are also many that are less well-known-the story of Cuchulainn, the Celtic hero, Wen P'eng, the Chinese boy who turns into a dragon, and Rustam, Zal and Sohrab, the three princes of Persia.
