Publisher's Summary

Some of us may be familiar with Chinese mythology, and to others, it’s a complete mystery. The Chinese had a lot of gods and goddesses, and in this ancient, historical country, with all the empires and dynasties, a plethora of legends and stories developed. Listen to Chinese mythology and learn about subtopics such as:  

  • The meaning of the Chinese Moon Festival and its background. 
  • Lu Xun’s China and a historical overview. 
  • Wu Gang, Tang Emperor Xuan Zong, and Lady Chang Er. 
  • The significance of Moon cakes and the traditional foods during the festival. 
  • Chinese dynasties, and the main gods and goddesses in Chinese Mythology.   

If we desire to understand more about the ancient Orient, then it’s time to listen to an audiobook and start studying, so we can go back to where all the traditions and background started.

Not Mythology

Little Mythology, no talk of Xing Tian, Ao Kuang or any of the interesting stories. Told 1 myth, then it was just history, politics, fighting styles, and teaching tactics.

A good book with a lot of good ideas!

Chapter 1 Sun Woking-The monkey king. Hayes gives us a nice introduction to a famous story, also known as the Journey to the west, which amongst other things, explains how the Buddhist teachings came to China.

Chinese myths

Can I just say that I love the artwork on the cover? Aside from that, I didn't know these Chinese myths, but I noticed in the airplane that some Chinese guy was watching a movie with all those gods and goddesses and superpowers and that sparked my interest.
