Review:

'As a tour of the world's great civilizations and the myths that give voice to their cultures, Padraic Colum's stands out as being not only sweeping in scope but beautiful in voice... This one-volume edition carries within its covers more cultural heartbeats and beautiful vision than any other single book I can think of. Myths of the World is a book to enjoy throughout a lifetime.'
- Bob and Nancy's Waldorf Bookstore

'The interest of this book lies in its scope and in the engaging way in which the myths are recounted. Suitable for bedtime reading either to yourself or your children.'
- Scientific and Medical Network Review

Synopsis:

A treasure-house of stories from ancient myth and legend told by one of Ireland's greatest storytellers. In this classical collection of tales from the ancient world are found all the legendary heroic and tragic figures of the time: Isis, Osiris, Gilgamesh, Hercules, and Pandora, to name just a few. These stories, once sacred, even now have a deep human significance, and are written in a language that recalls the rhythm and melody of traditional storytelling. Showing the close relation between their past cultures, Padraic Colum includes stories from ancient Egypt and Babylon, Greece and Rome, Ireland and Iceland, China and Japan, New Zealand, Mexico and Peru.
