Product Description:

The New York Times Book Review called it "at once a reference book and a book which may be read for stimulation and pleasure." Edith Hamilton has done a marvelous job in compiling and retelling these tales of so long ago. From the gods of Olympus in the Greek tradition and the gods of Rome they inspired, to the stories of love and adventure, of war and heroes, and of families and royalty, this book covers it all. In fact, it also includes myths of lesser importance, myths of extreme brevity, and the myths of the Norsemen. An incredible resource that has been in use for more than sixty years, its content is timeless. ~ Zach

They have many interesting facets (the more you study them, the more you learn). The cards from the various time periods are color coded and numbered - there are 32 cards in each pack. If the cards also relate to Bible history they have another color and another number. Each card has a picture (usually in full color) representing what it is about. For example, the card for Creation has a reproduction of the Creation of the sun and moon from the Sistine Chapel Ceiling by Michelangelo. Many of the other pictures on the other cards are famous paintings as well. Each card has a
