'Campbell, the internationally-recognized authority on mythology, here begins his "One Great Story" by recounting the mythic origins of the cosmos and of time itself. Drawing upon fragments from preliterate traditions, the latest scientific findings, and the most authoratative scholarship, he recounts a compelling portrait of our hunting-and-gathering ancestors.'
