Tales of Ancient Egypt - by Roger Lancelyn Green
We know of no other book that so thoroughly covers the legends and myths of Ancient Egypt, sure to enhance a study of the era. Includes legends from ancient Egypt - of gods, magic and adventure.
These stories include the great myths - of Amen-Ra, who created all the creatures in the world; of Isis, searching the waters for her dead husband Osiris; of the Bennu Bird and the Book of Thoth. But there are also tales told for pleasure, treasure, and adventure - even the first ever Cinderella story.
