Book Description ABC-CLIO Ltd, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Compiled from ancient and scattered texts and based on revelatory new research, Handbook of Chinese Mythology is the most comprehensive English-language work on the subject ever written from an exclusively Chinese perspective. This work focuses on the Han Chinese people but ranges across the full ethnic spectrum of ancient and modern China, showing how key myths endured and evolved over time. A quick reference section covers all major deities, spirits, and demigods, as well as important places (Kunlun Mountain), mythical animals and plants (the crow with three feet; Fusang tree), and appurtenances (Xirang--a kind of mythical soil; Bu Si Yao--mythical medicine for long life). No other work captures so well what Chinese mythology means to the people who lived and continue to live their lives by it. Bookseller Inventory # FLT9781576078068
