The Three Princes of Persia: Children in World Myth
The Three Princes of Persia: Children in World Myth
Description
From the Jacket:

Twenty fabulous tales of young heroes from around the world

Myths, they say, are the dreams of mankind, at once utterly strange and hauntingly familiar. They tell of beginnings and ends, creation and destruction, life and death… The twenty myths in this book come from many different cultures all over the world - from the great classic tales of Greece and Rome, and from Norse, Celtic, Egyptian, Native American, African, Indian and Asian traditions. At the heart of each is the story of a child hero.

Some of the stories are well-known: the story of Horus, the boy who won the throne of Egypt; of Heracles, the Greek hero who as an infant killed mighty serpents; and of Romulus and Remus, who were suckled by a wolf and went on to found Rome. There are also many that are less well-known - the story of Cuchulainn, the Celtic hero, and his valour as a child soldier, and of Wen P'eng, the Chinese boy who turns into a dragon. The title story describes the childhood adventures of three Persia's great princess - Zal the White-haired, Rustam the Valiant and Sohrab the Smiling.

Rohini Chowdhury's magical narrative captures the adventure, mystery and wonder of these stories.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
