Visits to the ghost realm

by Michael Boughn

Every culture in the world has stories about legendary places beneath the earth. Very often, these underground worlds belong to the dead. This fascinating book takes you into these forbidden realms, where you will encounter powerful gods, terrifying creatures, and violent demons. 

Comprised of myths from many different cultures -among them Greek, African, Aztec, Celtic, Egyptian and Mayan - readers will delight in the familiar (the story of Persephone) and the new (the Zuni Spirit Wife).
