Review
"A landmark book" -- Maurice Friedman, author of "Touchstones of Reality""An Anthology devoted to myths of creation has long been needed and the selection in this volume is first-rate..." -- "Parabola""Any extensive exploration of mythology will reveal how incredibly heterogeneous Human culture is. I know of no book that shows this better than Barbara Sproul's "Primal Myths." -- "San Francisco Chronicle's Whole Earth Catalog"
