Format Price Qty

Who is Chuku? What is Unkulunkulu? Why are myths so important in our lives? Myths are a rich source of history. People use them to make sense of our world. Even before myths were written down, people told and retold the stories of the gods and goddesses of their homeland. Readers of African Mythology will learn the history of myths, as well as their deeper meaning. From Cagn of the San people of the Kalahari Desert to Mboom of the Kuba people of central Africa, this book helps kids understand the myths that shape and direct people's lives.
