      A culture hero is a mythological hero specific to some group (cultural, ethnic, religious, etc.) who changes the world through invention or discovery.A typical culture hero might be credited as the discoverer of fire, or agriculture, songs, tradition, law or religion, and is usually the most important legendary figure of a people, sometimes as the founder of its ruling dynasty. Mythology succeeds like no other audiobook in bringing to life for the modern listener the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths and legends that are the keystone of Western culture - the stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present.

      In ancient Roman religion and myth, Hercules was venerated as a divinized hero and incorporated into the legends of Rome's Romans adapted Greek myths and the iconography of Heracles into their own literature and art, but the hero developed distinctly Roman characteristics. Some Greek sources as early as the 6th and 5th century BC gave Heracles Roman connections during his famous. The Roman myths contained in this collection will be brought to life so all the details are more than merely a bunch of Feats of strength and skill, monsters, magic, divine interventions, and the overcoming of impossible odds by larger-than-life figures all feature in this book/5(2).

        The books written about the heroes of Greek mythology include Hercule and Perseus, where the books written about the gods of Greek mythology include Zeus, Apollo, Hades, and Hephaestus. This series of Greek heroes and gods takes the nonfiction myths of these characters and gives them a youthful feel for kids to read and understand. i enjoyed this book very much, infact this was the first book i read when i took a serious interest in Greek Mythology. this was a great book to read and full of interesting information and stories on the greek gods and heroes. this book encouraged me to continue my fascination with the greek gods and all the mythology surrounding them. a fantastic book to read/5(12).
