Myths & Legends

Mythical monsters and legendary heroes have fascinated people for thousands of years. No one will ever know for sure if the terrible Minotaur ever existed or if the ancient Greeks really did destroy the city of Troy with a huge, wooden horse. But behind all these fantastic stories there lies some truth. Perhaps the people within Mythology Secrets really did exist, but over many, many years the stories surrounding them have become more and more outrageous until the true facts have all but disappeared. Whether true or untrue, Mythology Secrets retell magical tales of fantastic feats and events that will captivate all who read them.
