The relationship and search for God, gods, or goddesses is one of civilized mans earliest preoccupations. Our place in the universe is anything but certain and with that uncertainty comes the need for explanation and a yearning for understanding. It has always been the enigma of man to explain, theorize, or pontificate upon that which the obvious solution evades us. This book is a collection of varying myths and epics of the Ancient Sumerian civilization. The Sumerian culture is deeply rooted in myth and mystery. Their influence is greatly seen in all of Ancient Mesopotamian civilizations and they played a heavy hand in forming the mythology of the ancient people in the cradle of civilization. This book is a tribute to the tales of old that have seemingly long been forgotten, it is the figurative ode to Ancient Mesopotamia and the great impact and influence they still hold on todays cultures. I hope you enjoy the compilation of the following tales of mythology! Buy now for a limited time discount! Excerpt From Sumerian Mythology: In the beginning, the skies and the earth were yet unnamed. In the beginning, all the waters of the world mingled. In the beginning, there was nothing but chaos. From all this chaos, the twin primordial beings were born. They were Tiamat, the goddess queen who was salt water personified, and Apsu, the king god of fresh water. But they had mixed their waters together and thought not of green lands nor human beings nor beasts that roam the land. Therefore, in the beginning, non-existent names failed to cross non-existent lips. Non-existent days failed to roll into non-existent years. In the beginning, no gods nor heroes nor destinies nor stories were manifest.
