Book - 1985
Rate this:
Since time began, people have been fascinated by the four elements -- earth, air, fire and water. Here are twenty-four stories about them, retold in powerful style and gathered from many cultures and many times -- from Peruvian Mayans, Canadian Indians, Missouri cowboys, Chinese philosophers, Hawaiians, Anglo-Saxons, New Zealand Maoris, and ancient Greeks.
Juliet Heslewood's writing is compelling and often poetic, and the author thoughtfully provides considerable background on each story at the end of the book together with suggestions for further reading. Her storytelling has been praised in England as "strong and eloquent" (Junior Bookshelf) and now this fine collection is published in America for the first time. Each of the four sections is vividly illustrated by a different artist to suit the changing mood of each element.

JULIET HESLEWOOD is the author of Tales of Sea and Shore and divides her time between France and England.
