Described as 'a complete theme-by-theme guide to extraordinary, mind- stretching stories and images from around the world', this is a compendium of the most enduring tales from both well-known and more obscure mythological traditions. Christopher Dell recounts the myths alongside hundreds of colour illustrations, comparing similar features to show how these diverse products of the human imagination share many story-patterns, from the world's creation to conceptions of the afterlife and underworld.
