Ancient peoples created myths to help explain the world around them---creation, death and the underworld, seasons and agriculture, natural disasters, class structure in society, and commerce. Myths Understood features important myths from different ancient cultures and describes the roles and relationships of the gods that were the foundation of their religions.

Understanding Indian Myths explores the roles and relationships of the heroes and gods of ancient India. Several ancient myths, including "Brahma Creates the Universe," "The Story of Rama and Sita," and "The Three Cities in the Sky," are retold, describing how these stories helped people in ancient India interpret their world.
