    These were some fun stories. It took me until the Norse myths to realize just how like superhero-ish basically all roman and Norse myths were. the native american tales were fun and something i'm surprised i haven't heard before, and the old tales like the flying Dutchman were interesting because you hear about them but never read up on them. that said there were some real boring stories in here scattered through out, along with every story from india

    This book I enjoyed quite a bit. It introduced me to Atalanta (“The Hunting of the Calydonian Boar,” “The Winning of Atalanta”) and I found several legends, including stories of the saints especially, to my liking. In “The Hunting...” Atalanta is a tough girl, one that I imagine feminists would like.

Although they'd probably cringe at “The Winning...” because a guy takes her in by guile and she lives with him as wife (rather than her striking out on her own path and being satisfied without a man). But that is my very simple idea of what a feminist looks for in the portrayal of a woman. And no doubt feminists from different streams would think differently. Can you tell I have no feminist friends?

    The 3rd volume of a very enjoyable series of books from when I was Young. I took it off my parent's book shelf many times. "Myths and Legends," is still in my home.
