A visual and informative guide to the myths of world civilizations, now revised and updated in the relaunched DK Eyewitness Books format.
Get up close and personal and be an eyewitness to the mythological stories of cultures throughout the world with DK Eyewitness Books: Mythology.
Whether it's the creation of the world, the fertility of the land, or a history of its people, each culture has its own mythology: a collection of stories that explain the world as it relates to them and that has been passed down through the generations. From heroes and villains to gods and tricksters to floods and the end of the world, discover the myths of the Norse, Greek, Hindu, Inuit, Egyptian, Chinese, Japanese, Native American, and other cultures.
DK Eyewitness Books: Mythology is a visual and informative guide to the stories that prove a central part of the world's peoples.
Series Overview: Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
