Book Description Houghton Mifflin Harcourt P, United States, 1991. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Barry Moser (illustrator). Reprint. 251 x 203 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The origin of the universe, and all that is in it, has always been cause for wonder. For thousands of years, people have made up stories in an attempt to explain the beginning of humankind, the earth, and the cosmos.Beautifully told by Virginia Hamilton and splendidly illustrated by Barry Moser, In The Beginning is a collection of twenty-five creation myth stories that will engage and fascinate readers while introducing them to cultures around the world. Researched extensively by both author and illustrator, each story includes one or more illustrations - all stunning complements to the text. And each story is followed by author comments that tell about its origin.The stories in this book reflect the wonderful range of the human imagination. In an Eskimo myth, for example, the first man pushes his way out of a pea pod. In a story from the Kono people of Guinea, death starts the world. A dramatic myth from China tells that the universe was originally in the shape of a hen s egg - and from this burst the first being.To read the diverse beliefs of people around the world, both ancient and contemporary, broadens our understanding of others and strengthens our own spirituality. Intriguing, often humorous, and always fascinating, In The Begining is a memorable book for readers of all ages. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780152387426
