When They Severed Earth from Sky

Apparently I'm hooked on Elizabeth Barber's books right now because this is another book she wrote. This one was written with her husband, Paul Barber and is about mythology. I very much enjoyed this one too. The Barbers take a variety of mostly European and Middle Eastern myths and reinterpret them because they believe that many myths are based on actual events. It really is a very interesting book and highly recommended, although it would have been nice if there had been more myths examined from other parts of the world.
