    Summary Of The Book

    Who was Amen-Ra and how did he create the entire world and its inhabitants? Was he the ultimate god? How did the vulnerable Isis go hunting for her dead husband Osiris in the waters? Did the Bennu bird also emerge like the phoenix?

    All these amazing stories and more is what Tales of Ancient Egypt chronicles for its readers. A beautiful mosaic of ancient Egyptian legends interspersed with fascinating mythological characters, the book is a wonderful and gripping read for one and all.

    The reader embarks on a riveting journey with the author, bringing to life the world of ancient Egypt with its enthralling tales. A repertoire of stories from the primal land of Egypt, Tales of Ancient Egypt describes the actions of Egyptian gods, heroes and other mythological characters through its impressive narration.

    The book, a primer on Egyptian mythology, also brings forth some delightful legends, like that of the girl with the red-rose slippers, considered to be the earliest and the oldest version of the timeless Cinderella story.

    A delightful and entertaining experience, Tales of Ancient Egypt, first published in 1967, uses the art of storytelling to recreate the enchanting world of the ancient city of Egypt and the endeavours of its champions. The book is also regarded as a quintessential contribution to the study of this glorious civilisation.
