Summary
  • A compelling and visually stunning tour of the netherworlds. Into the World of the Dead takes preteens on a tour of the deep and dark places that haunt their dreams. Dramatic retellings of legendary tales and striking photos of artwork and artifacts reveal the forces and events that have challenged humanity to envision this most forbidding of environments. Each short chapter thematically explores underworld concepts in various cultures. Topics covered include: Underworlds, Otherworlds, Who went, Who ruled, Getting there, Getting back, Guardians and monsters. Readers will meet hellish inhabitants, such as Coatlicue, the Aztec goddess with a skirt of serpents and a necklace of skulls. They'll witness ways into the underworld, like the giant serpent's mouth leading to the Mayan realm of Xibalba, and ways out. They'll learn that the underworld has its own set of laws, often learned at the peril of those who dare make the journey. By taking readers on a voyage of nightmarish proportion, Into the World of the Dead allows them to explore their own fears and imaginings, and ultimately to tame them
