They come out in your dreams, your creativity, and your passion. They represent you in all your glory and complexity, and you represent them. They are the goddesses and heroines that form your true history. Now let these mythic stories nourish your soul as they speak to you on a level as deep and mysterious as the source of life itself.

Goddesses and heroines exist in virtually every culture and every time. Now you can discover their secrets in The New Book of Goddesses & Heroines (an expanded edition of The Book of Goddess and Heroines) by Patricia Monaghan.

The third edition of this classic reference offers a complete collection of goddess myths from around the globe and includes over fifty photographs from the world-famous Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. And now there is a section on "Cultures of the Goddess", which provides information on the major religious systems detailed in the myths.

Discover more than 1,500 goddesses from Australia, Africa, North and South America, Asia, Europe-and experience her as she truly is. This new edition also adds hundreds of new entries to the original text-information found only in rare or limited editions and obscure sources.

Never before has such a vast panorama of female divinity been recorded in one source-this fascinating book is a testament to the great diversity of her power.
