The Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Mythology by Sue Jones

Every culture in history has had a belief in the divine and a mythology to explain the world around them. Angry gods and goddesses might be the reason for a drought or why illness befell a village. If the gods were happy or pleased, sea voyages went well and there was a bountiful crop. In addition to explaining the toils and luck of daily life, the mythology and legends was a way to impart cultural values and parables to the following generations.
