This work focuses on the Han Chinese people but ranges across the full spectrum of ancient and modern China, showing how key myths endured and evolved over time. A quick reference section covers all major deities, spirits, and demigods, as well as important places, mythical animals and plants, and related items. With more than 40 illustrations and photographs, fresh translations of primary sources, and insight based on the authors' own field research, no other work captures so well what Chinese mythology means to the people who lived and continue to live their lives by it."@en ;
