From Library Journal
The study of mythology does not suffer from a dearth of fine, scholarly reference books, but until now the general reader lacked a good, illustrated collection of the most important myths. In this fascinating and authoritative encyclopedia, scholarly contributors use more than 500 color photographs, maps, and artifacts to describe the myths of Egypt, the Middle East, India, China, Tibet, Mongolia, Japan, Greece, Rome, the Celtic lands, Northern and Eastern Europe, the Arctic, North and South America, Mesoamerica, Africa, Australia, Oceania, and Southeast Asia. An insightful foreword by Robert Walter of the Joseph Campbell Foundation adds further credibility to this oversized, colorful book. Recommended for the general reader and as an introduction for the student and scholar in any library.- Gary P. Gillum, Brigham Young Univ., Provo, Ut.
