Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
They ruled kingdoms and empires for thousands of years, tracing their lineage to gods in the sky and mastering the forces they believed moved the Sun and Moon, planets and stars. This work describes the fascinating myths and rituals of sky worship practised by Egypt's pharaohs, the emperors of China, Tibetan lamas, and Mongolian shamans, the kings of Anatolia's mountains and of Mesoamerica's jungles, and desert chiefs from Africa and the American Southwest. A shaman is the man who has sole contact with the gods; he is the only person that can interpret the signs to the people.
