What causes the northern lights? How does a solar eclipse happen? What creates thunder? These are questions people have tried to explain since the beginning of time.

This book offers brief, understandable and fascinating scientific explanations to a multitude of questions, then leads readers to another time and culture to examine them.

After learning about rituals, customs and beliefs of the culture, they are led to a folktale or myth that relates to the scientific question posed at the beginning of the chapter.

The tale also demonstrates how people of ancient times viewed the world.

An accompanying audio cassette offers readers the opportunity to listen to these tales with their characters and suspenseful story lines.

Songs on the tape reflect the ethnicities of the cultures.
