Legends of the Afterlife
From the Series Death Uncovered
A soul travels to the ancient Egyptian underworld. There, it is weighed by Osiris, the god of the underworld. If the soul is light enough, it will live forever in the Field of Reeds. But if it is too heavy, it will be thrown into a lake of fire, or devoured by the terrifying goddess Ammit. Death Uncovered: Legends of the Afterlife takes readers on a journey around the world to learn about myths and legends about death. These six narrative stories will take readers around the world, including Japan, where a god tries to rescue a goddess from the underworld, and Mexico where Quetzalcoatl must gather the bones of the dead to save the world. These tales from ancient cultures will have readers glued to the page.
