From all cultures down through the ages have come stories that seek to explain how the world as we know it began and how it will end; the sources of human conflictual the unseen forces as well as the unwritten rules that govern human behaviour and destiny. There are stories from many parts of the world about such recurring themes as a long sleep, a descent into an underworld, the quest for the unreachable, and the ultimate: the search for the Holy Grail.
Such archetypal stories arose from the same creative energy that produces all great literature. This book is a reservoir of such stories drawn from many different cultures.
