Project Gutenberg contains hundreds of books on mythology, both scholarly and popular works that introduce readers to the wealth of myths, legends, tales, and folk stories among ancient and modern cultures from around the world. In compiling the Mythology Bookshelf, the aim has been to select books that focus on or at least deal with some aspect of creation myths - stories that specific cultures believe to explain the origins of the universe and of their place in the world.
