Myths and legends have been an important part of the spiritual wealth of mankind throughout history.
Every nation has its share of legends, and so does China. There were three main nationality groups in ancient times—Huaxia (Han nationality), Dongyi (Eastern Tribes) and Miaoman (Southern Tribes). Now, after thousands of year, these have given rise to a multiple Chinese nationality. Chinese mythology has evolved gradually with Han tales at the core, while absorbing part of the tales of the Eastern and Southern Tribes. China’s mythological history is quite different from that of Greece.
This book attempts to give readers a complete understanding of Chinese mythology. The interpretation of Chinese legends will be done on the basis of differences between traditional Chinese and Western cultures. It is hoped this book will help readers truly appreciate these charming tales.
