Book Summary:

A better deal could not be out there. This valuable box or combo contains six titles that are each targeted towards a different area of the world. Most are in Europe, and a couple of them beyond that continent. You will read about myths, deities, people being killed, people betraying each other, animals that can talk, supernatural powers that are exerted, and much, much more. Each of these books is not only filled with the stories from those times, but a number of background details of that particular society as well, so you can better understand how people thought and why these stories make more sense in the historical context. Feel free to begin reading or listening anytime, but I would encourage you to start right now.

Book Summary:

Across all cultures and spanning centuries, superstitions rooted in cultural legends and myths have formed and influenced daily life. Superstitions: A Handbook of Folklore, Myths, and Legends from around the World​ explains how and why these legends and the associated behaviors behind them developed, accompanied by beautiful illustrations. In this definitive reference, you’ll learn the fascinating and often bizarre histories of a comprehensive range of superstitions from around the world. For example, the belief that one will have seven years' bad luck if you break a mirror is said to come from the Romans, who were the first to create glass mirrors. And in Japanese culture, cutting your nails at night is thought to lead to a quick death because the two phrases sound similar. You’ll also find out why some superstitions vary from culture to culture. For instance, the “unlucky” number 13 is considered a bad omen in some countries, like the US, and “lucky” in other countries, like Italy—where the number 17 is considered unlucky. The information is organized by country, so you can easily investigate the popular superstitions linked to your own or other specific ethnic heritage or cultural identity. Satisfy your burning curiosity with this complete guide to superstitions, folklore, and myths. The Mystical Handbook series from Wellfleet takes you on a magical journey through the wonderful world of spellcraft and spellcasting.

Book Summary:

This is a bundle of two books. The information on these two titles is described as follows: Title 1: Have you ever wondered about the Aztecs, the Mayans, the Inuit, or the Polynesians and their beliefs? Did they have myths like the ancient Greek civilization? Were there spirits, gods, or supernatural creatures they believed in?These are the topics of this elaborate guide. The false notions about these peoples will be outlined and debunked. The confusion will be done away with, as you read through these explanations about how all these stories all fit together.Many of us don't know much about mythological stories from these regions, and it is my pleasure and privilege to educate you on the intricate details that lie within them. That's why I have also provided some fascinating facts and historical background about each of these peoples. Creation myths, legacies, the sacrificing of children, the empires, and their wars are all mentioned and touched on in this book.Title 2: The two conquering countries of the Second World War have not just been active in the 20th century, but both of their histories date way back. However, many of the things they did in the early days of their developing nations and peoples, were based on the things they believed.Some of these beliefs were mythological creatures, nature spirits, symbols, and actual gods and goddesses with supernatural powers. In this guide, you will read about some of the most intriguing of these.The book will cover Germanic mythology, which has many similarities and differences with Norse mythology in the same era. Topics such as famous animals, war symbols, Germanic civilization, practices, and rituals will be addressed.The second part of the book will dive deeper into the ancient Japanese myths, dragons, swords, and other symbolically-related items and icons that will open your eyes to a completely different realm of presumptions. Together, the mythology of these two countries helps you understand the world of the ancients better
