The classic bestseller is now available for the first time as an ebook. With an incredible understanding of the nuances of classic mythology, Bernard Evslin brilliantly recounts the most compelling stories of heroes and monsters, light and dark, good and evil. Get to know the iconic gods, heroes, and tragic figures: Zeus, the all-powerful father of the gods; Hera, his cunning and jealous wife; seductive, golden-haired Aphrodite, the goddess of love; King Midas, who greedily loves gold above all else; the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his creation; and many more. With each story, Evslin captures the beauty and power of Greek mythology, and through his funny asides, he gives life to these ancient characters. A perennial staple of curriculums around the world, Evslin's Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths is an invaluable resource.

I swallowed this one down whole. Great for kids and adults. There are many diamonds of wisdom in these pages. Some images the author creates are uniquely beautiful. You may find this book touching and it may leave a lasting impression upon you. At the same time, the stories are ancient and play a deep role in literature through the ages. Written so long ago but the characters can still be found among us today. Educational and highly entertaining.
