Quote :The beginner's guide to Sumerian mythology that's perfect for both casual and academic use. It's written such that anyone can pick it up and start reading, even those who know nothing of Sumer or mythology. The first section uses a cheeky tone to teach a little about the lives and worldviews of the Sumerian people. The next section has short versions of most existing myths rewritten to be easy to read without losing vital information. Finally, the back contains an appendix of important characters, places, creatures, and objects.
