Vander Ploeg does an excellent job with his extensive research into ancient tales of epic battles, gods, kings and mystical beings, especially the similarities of archaic myths between diverse civilizations all across the globe.
For example, did you know that practically every culture have tales of little people that live just out of sight of mankind? Their names may vary from land to land, but they all seem to be the same type of creature no matter where you go.
As well, dragons play a huge role in Tolkien's tales; interestingly, in many ancient civilizations, dragons were either worshiped as creatures of beauty and honor, or feared for their destructive capabilities. Again, was there an actual physical source for these legends? Was there once a time when god-kings, little people, dragons and great heroes roamed the Earth and whose epic deeds have been carried down to us through our collective unconsciousness, myth and legend?
Despite what science tries to tell us, we have no idea where we, as a people, actually came from. Our past is as closed off and unknown as our future. It is nice to think that with each and every one of us, there lies within our blood, our inner selves, a mystic past full of great kings and queens, magical little people, fearsome beasts and great heroes capable chivalrous deeds. Quest for Middle Earth opens our imaginations so that we all can make our own quests, our own search for answers about who we are, where we came from, and ultimately where we are going.
If I could give it negative stars, I would.
