Review by kmoellering
National Geographic has produced a beautiful little book detailing the myths and legends of the world's fabled god, goddesses, and heroes. The guide is touted as the essential visual history and it is gorgeous. Divided into sections, the guide covers all parts of the world: Ancient Near East, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Norse & Celtic Mythology, Indian, Chinese, American, African, and Australian/Oceanic. The index is nice and seems extensive, my only complaint is that there are no pronunciation guides for the names, which can be very complex! If you are looking for a little non-fiction fun, take a look at this beautiful little book.km
