By Jackson, JakeForeword by Doty, William G.
Stories of the beginning, both of humankind and the universe itself have fascinated us for thousands of years. This comprehensive new book offers tales of creation from the many different traditions around the world, each one reflecting the climate of their origins, with water, o...r desert, or the heaving mountains taking centre stage. In China the cosmic egg sprouted limbs that became the earth, in Ancient Egypt the primeval ocean spawned the God Amen and in India there are are so many intriguing and magical stories, some of the philosophical, others more brutal. From the tribes of Africa, and North America, to the crucible of religions in the Middle East the desire to understand the world and its origins continues to fascinate us, and this is the perfect book to enjoy these multi-faceted views.Read more
