Even before myths were written down, people told and retold the stories of the gods and goddesses of their homeland. Readers of Middle Eastern Mythology will learn the history of myths, as well as their deeper meaning. From the Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar to the Canaanite thunder god, Baal, this book helps kids understand the myths that shape and direct people's lives.
