The presentation comprises a brief summary of each mythical story. Variants of the characters names are offered and attributed to regions and historical regions. Conjectural origins of the myth are offered, usually as the supplanting or evolution of a local cult following conquest by rival tribes, or migration and merger of communities.
The presentation is somewhat bare bones and thus somewhat dry, making this more of a reference book than a retelling the stories for modern readers. Thus some of the archetype magic is lost.
The current editions contain some revisions by the author of his original theories concerning the myths.
