5.0 étoiles sur 5Beautifully illustrated mythology8 décembre 2004
Par Gagewyn - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is one in Time Life Books' The Enchanted World series. Each of these books covers a different aspect of folklore and mythology, and they are an excellent set. They tell stories in a similar format and complement each other well without repeating the content. Each is about 140 pages. This is a beautifully illustrated well printed volume. Modern and older pictures of dragons appear on almost every page. The history here is visual as well as factual.
Each chapter follows the format of general information and then a fairy tale illustrating that theme. The general information here give a very nice overview of the types of dragons in different cultures and the different myths around their slaying and extinction. Stories are retold in a style that makes for a good read and come from all over the world. Often there will be smaller illustrations and captions in the margins to the main text. These tell variations of the story and related stories from other cultures.
This is a beautifully bound and printed book. The binding is just cloth to collectors, but it is printed to look like a wizard's book. The cover shows a dragon holding a picture of Sigurd slaying the dragon. I think it was the cover that got me reading this when I was child.
Chaos Incarnate: A Field Guide to Dragons
Glittering Gods of the East: A maid who braved the deep
The Serpent Ascendant: Sojourn in a watery realm
Rise of the Dragonslayer: Ancient tales of Persian kings
This is a well researched nicely produced series. For me one book in the series had me hooked. If you are interested in mythology and all things magic then it is definitely worth trying out the series. This book especially, with it's Field Guide to Dragons, should appeal to you. High school and middle school libraries should consider the series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5Field Guide to Dragons2 janvier 2000

If you love dragons, this is the ultimate guide book. No wizard's library should be without the Time-Life book of Dragons. Learn the difference between a lindworm and a guivre! Find out the sacred tasks of the Chinese dragons! Discover all the uses of a dragon's dream pearl! It's all here. Particularly instructive is the story of the dragon of Lambton Hall. It'll make you think twice about throwing a salamander down the well. I was reading this book at school one day and a boy sitting next to me remarked, "Lucky!" That's how you'll feel when YOU get your hands on the big book of DRAGONS.

Very well written book, one of my personal favorites from the Time-Life series. This book spans the globe on dragons and folklore from europe , asia, and russia as well. There's a pretty handy section called a field guide for dragons that may help you on your quest! Some pretty wild art in here also. My favorite sections were, Glittering gods of the east, and a story titled "sojourn into a watery realm." well worth purchasing if your into the enchanted world series!
