Synopsis

Mythical Hero Stories by David (University of Newcastle, New South Wales) West

Ten boldly illustrated stories tell classic tales from different cultures of battles between heroes and powerful opponents. Tales include: Theseus versus the Minotaur, and Perseus versus Medusa, from Greek mythology; Beowulf versus monsters and dragons from Anglo-Saxon mythology; and the Mayan twins versus the lords of the Underworld. Other well-known stories feature Sinbad the Sailor from Arabic literature and the Swiss hero William Tell. Feature boxes add additional details to help readers better understand concepts in the story as well as the time period in which the story was written.
