As many as six thousand years ago, when their civilization flourished in the Nile River valley, the ancient Egyptians told many of the myths in this book. In MYTHOLOGY OF THE EGYPTIANS, author Don Nardo discusses various myths, including "The Creation of the Gods and Humans," and "The Near Destruction of Humanity." Nardo also introduces us to the story within a story in "The Shipwrecked Sailor." Each chapter is followed by a Question and Answer section which covers characters, themes, and symbols. An Expert Commentary section enhances the myths with opinions by noted scholars. This book is developed from EGYPTIAN MYTHOLOGY to allow republication of the original text into ebook, paperback, and trade editions.
