       Additional Information  
      From the beginnings of time, people have used mythology to describe and explain the great events of human experience: creation, birth, suffering, and death. Gathered from more than twenty cultures, including American Indian, African, and Asian, these 50 spellbinding tales sample legends of love, adventure, exploration, and conquest, from the familiar folklore of King Arthur and Robin Hood to lesser-known myths from Celtic, Persian, and Russian story cycles. Recounted by master storytellers like Nathaniel Hawthorne, Charles Kingsley, Peter Tremayne, and Jessica Amanda Salmonson.
