Traditions and Tales of Favorite Fabled CreaturesBook - 2000
Most of the mythical monsters and beasts that live in our literature and lore -- some wild and dangerous, others noble and gentle -- were born in the fertile crescent of prehistoric Mesopotamia, the land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Their images appeared on objects and walls centuries and more before any hand wrote their tales; their legends eventually traveled all over the world and down through time. Mythical Beasts follows the most captivating of these creatures on their journeys, detailing their origins, telling their stories, and offering valuable insights into their human creators.
