Synopsis

This is a collection of a series of interviews in which the mythologist Joseph Campbell tells his own story, from his Catholic upbringing and early interest in Native American culture, through Paris in the 1920s and into the world of modern mythmakers such as George Lucas. Joseph Campbell, arguably one of the greatest mythologist of our time, was certainly one of our greatest STORYTELLERS. This book recounts his own quest and conveys the excitement of his life-long exploration of our mythic traditions, which he called "the one great story of mankind". The book interweaves conversations with Campbell and some of the popel people he inspired, and includes photographs from Campbell's family archive to provide a window on his world.
