This text, complete with photographs and illustrations that show the gods and goddesses in their characteristic forms, is a retelling of stories from Ancient Egyptian mythology. The stories featured include those of the sun god Ra, the tragic death and rebirth of Osris with the help of Isis, the near-burlesque of Horus' battle with the evil Seth, and the "gods of intellect" Thoth and Maat. With an updated bibliography and glossary as well as new charts showing the gods at-a-glance and Ancient Egyptian chronology in brief, this book is designed to enchant and inform a new generation of readers.
