Book Description: University of California Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 241 x 184 mm. Brand New Book. In this compelling new book, accompanying the PBS television series of the same name, historian Michael Wood, whose renowned adventures have taken him to many remote and exciting places around the globe, now goes in search of four powerful legends: Shangri-La, the Golden Fleece, the Queen of Sheba, and the Holy Grail. Gorgeously illustrated by Steve Razzetti, with full-color photographs of some of the most beautiful landscapes and cities on earth, In Search of Myths and Heroes is a series of real journeys to real places and an encounter with the living descendants of the ancient cultures that produced the four legends. From the mountains of Tibet to the coasts of Ethiopia and Yemen to the city of Jerusalem and the far west of Ireland, Wood brings us along as he separates fact from fiction and discovers why these famous stories still captivate us. Michael Wood s In Search of Myths Heroes explores four remarkable legends that have endured from ancient eras to modern times. Shangri-la: The Paradise Myth - From Babylonia to ancient Tibet to Frank Capra s movie Lost Horizon - the story of an earthly paradise has been immortalized through the ages. But was there a real Shangri-la? Jason the Golden Fleece: The Hero s Quest - Possibly the oldest story in world literature and one still told today - from Gilgamesh to Star Wars - Jason s quest is that of a young man who must venture into the unknown to complete an impossible task. It is a story of bravery, treachery, and love, but what price must our hero pay for achieving his mission impossible ? The Queen of Sheba: The Woman of Power - The tale of Sheba, told for more than two and half millennia in Arabia, the Near East, Africa, and Europe, is the story of a woman who is a founder of nations, a fantasy lover, the personification of wisdom, adored and demonized in equal measure. Is this the fate of powerful women even today? Arthur: The Once Future King - Arthur, said to have ruled in a golden age, had his power broken by human weakness and greed. His story, the myth of the king who will one day return, is echoed in nearly every culture in the world. But who was Arthur and why do we need to believe in him and his future reign? It is co-published by BBC. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780520251700
