Land of the Eagle: Albanian Mythology, by Dominic Butler
Enter the Land of the Eagle!
Discover the fascinating legends and heroes of Albania in this comprehensive collection of timeless tales.
In these pages are stories that were shrouded in mystery for generations, only told in person and never written down. Now you too can follow the adventures of the mighty Mujo and his brave band of agas; join the never-ending battle between the holy dragon-men and the monstrous nine-headed kulshedra; and journey to the Moving Mountains to face hungry giants, and shape-shifting shtrigas.
In The Land of the Eagle: Albanian Mythology, you will dive into a previously unexplored pantheon of gods and creatures, but find familiar themes of honour, courage, love, and the eternal dichotomy of good versus evil.
