By Steele, Philip
Incredible journeys feature in many ancient tales - made in the quest for love, honour, glory or dazzling rewards; to challenge terrible monsters; or obliterate enemies. This beautifully illustrated edition gathers together myths and legends from every corner of the globe. The st...ories seethe with intrepid characters and a rich pageant of gods and monsters. Superheroes, strange beasts and beautiful women overcome perilous obstacles, pit themselves against raging elements and visit fabulous lands. Some of the classic quest tales include Thor's epic journey to Utgard, the quest for the Holy Grail, Gilgamesh's attempt to conquer death, and the seven voyages of Sindbad. Background information to the tales is also included to provide a superb context for young students.Read more
