From the Publisher:

A multicultural mythologist marks a vital new phase in contemporary men's work by telling personally moving, universally evocative tales--from the mythic mating dance of an adolescent's Saturday night to a Forest of Stories from the African bush, ancient Ireland, Germany, Japan, and Russia.

From Library Journal:

In an effort to balance all the self-actualization books aimed at women, Meade successfully compiles international legends and myths that allow men to examine themselves objectively. This, Meade hopes, will help us avoid the chaos and ruin that occurs when a society no longer contains a relevant mythology, much as Joseph Campbell observed. The book is most effective in its use of ancient stories to illuminate conflicts modern men may experience. For instance, one story tells of a boy and a half-giantess who brews all the elements of creation in her cauldron. The boy steals food from her, symbolizing the partaking of wisdom, which helps him to become a full-fledged adult. Through such tales, the author examines how men can learn to understand their inner landscapes. For large psychology collections.
