Myths and Legends Books

The Myths and Legends series examines the great stories that have echoed down through time and have helped to shape our cultures. Each book in the series focuses on a specific legendary figure, such as King Arthur, Hercules, or Sinbad, or upon a collection of myths about topics such as giants, wizards or dragon slayers. The books retell these classic myths in a straightforward but entertaining style, while providing interesting, information about the history behind the stories and how these legends have changed and developed over time.
