While dragons and Chinese astrology are well embedded in popular culture, many other fascinating Chinese myths remain little-known. In this fascinating and readable new edition, author Te Lin explores the world of Chinese mythology, both telling us the timeless stories, and providing an explanation of what they may mean. A must-read for anyone interested in either Chinese culture, or mythology generally.
