About this title

Synopsis:

Rock paintings of the rainbow serpent in Australia date back more than 6,000 years and the legend has been passed down orally for even longer. The Aboriginal dreaming about this mystical being with a kangaroo head and crocodile tail is the personification of fertility and abundance. Its significance to the culture of indigenous Australians is priceless. Whether or not it ever existed is unimportant as the riches come from the lessons the rainbow serpent teaches about life, death, survival, and love.

Interest in mythology has exploded over the years and we now realize that many ancient legends have in fact assisted the human race in understanding the complex world we live in, even if they have been embellished over the years. Myths and Legends brings together the principal mythologies, legends, and folklore of ancient and modern cultures and explores the relationship that they have with their people and with the major religions of the world. This comprehensive study on the myths and legends of the world can be told as bedtime stories or enjoyed as extracurricular reading for those who love history. Myths and Legends is a lovely book full of tales passed down from generations from all over the world.
