    Of course none of the books in this series claims or even tries to be complete. They are a collection of myths from all over the world: this one exploring how the Earth, Sun, Moon, and stars came to be, where people, animals, and plants come from and how they got their individual characteristics. The fanciful telling of the stories coupled with lovely and colorful illustrations made this book a joy to read.

    Another beautifully illustrated and told collection from Time-Life Books' Enchanted World Series. This anthology of creation myths includes something from virtually every culture you can think of. The re-tellings are respectful and reflect the adept understanding of universal theology while maintaining the uniqueness of each culture's lens. One of the finest comparative mythology books I have read in a long time, this is a great intro for world mythology, enjoyable to read, magical and erudite, Another beautifully illustrated and told collection from Time-Life Books' Enchanted World Series.

    I have read nearly the entire Enchanted World series and I love it so much. There's so many interesting ideas and I find it easy to develop story concepts from them.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. My review for all of these books in this series is the same. Time-Life has once again done an outstanding job putting together a series. From cover to cover they are thoughtful, beautiful books. I'm starting to sound generic, but it's true. I'm a DK fan, I like white backgrounds and side notes with clear sections for every subject. This series has none of that. What they do have is an old book feel. Timeless artwork, thoroughness, and very well written makes these a must on my occult/paranormal b My review for all of these books in this series is the same.

Timeless artwork, thoroughness, and very well written makes these a must on my occult/paranormal bookshelf at home. I've been collecting the series slowly over several years and still have a few books to go. I refuse to go on amazon and buy them. It's all in the hunt for me. There is no subject they have left untouched. I highly recommend them.

    As much as I enjoy the writing, pictures, and stories of this series, this was my least favorite of the series so far. Though it did have a fine dose of Greek and Native American mythology and folklore.
