How I found this dictionary, 3 Aug. 2013
While not the most detailed book about mythology on the market, this dictionary covers so many cultures and differing myths it is quite brilliant. If you follow the different names given you will find much more information in ways you did not imagine. I have used this book daily since it came and do not know how I worked without it. For anyone wanting a lot of information about varying subjects this is for you. And it does go into considerable detail about certain figures, then and I enjoyed reading these parts the author also talks about the mystical ideas about animals.
