      The latest title in the bestselling Big Ideas series, The Mythology Book explores the compelling worlds and characters depicted in myths and legends. Most of us know The Odyssey, and how Odysseus bummed around and made himself ten years late for dinner. Greek Mythology books written during the mythological ages are difficult to read; no one spoke English, and translating from early Greek, or other languages that died many years ago, prove difficult reading experiences. The Titans, the first gods, were born from the union of earth and sky.

      Each section opens with a brief survey of the culture as a backdrop to that region's mythology and continues with a longer 'A-Z Codex' of the gods, goddesses, heroes, and tales significant to each mythology. Powell is a master of Greek Mythology and wrote many books on the subject, both fiction and non-fiction. Beyond the gods and goddesses of Ancient Greek, Roman, and Norse myths, this book delves into the stories of the Australian aborigines, the Cherokee, and the Aztecs, each brimming with amazing characters and insights into human existence. While researching books for this list, we found many of the books were for a younger age group or written for kids entirely.

      Each god, or hero, has a few pages written about them, and sit, somewhere, in a family tree of Myth, monsters, and heroes. This newest title in the bestselling Big Ideas series pairs engaging visual style with global coverage of world myths—profiling everything from the well-known tales of the Greeks, Norsemen, and Egyptians to the legends of the Caribbean, the Americas, Oceania, and East Asia—bringing the wisdom of the ages to life. The Iliad was translated many times. His status as favorite among the people could be because of the massive amount of wine consumed by the population.

Complete and comprehensive index and cross-referencing. The money goes back into building the Andreian code; thank you. Ovid's work is a classic that ties together so many stories as to be somewhat overwhelming, which is why it is best read in combination with Bulfinch, who, incidentally, developed many of his stories by translating Ovid.
