A good review of all major myths

This book gives a fine survey of Roman belief. Each of the above stories and multiple of the minors is included here. I would have wanted to see more of the myths from other religions, but it is natural that they are not involved, given the point that the work. A useful manual to myths.

Great tales to share with children

Greek and Roman Mythology really peek my interest, and this book captures them both perfectly. This book is like all of the roman myth books combined, along with stories of the conquests of the heroic gods.

A Roman Synthesis

I love this book. I found Matt's "Mythology" while in high school midway through the last century. I loved it then, and I've always learned it. Very well simplified, and nice illustrations!
