Every culture has stories or myths explaining how the world began or why certain events happen. In Egyptian Mythology, Don Nardo discusses various myths, including "The Creation of the Gods and Humans," and "The Near Destruction of Humanity." Nardo also introduces us to the story within a story in “The Shipwrecked Sailor.” Each chapter is followed by a Question and Answer section which covers characters, themes, and symbols. An Expert Commentary section enhances the myths with opinions by noted scholars. Striking original illustrations accompany the text.
