Shaw guides us on an entertaining and inventive tour up the Nile, through a beautiful and fascinating landscape populated with a rich mythology: the stories of Horus, Isis, Osiris and their enemies and allies, stories of vengeance, tragedy and fantastic metamorphoses. This traveler’s guide to mythology not only retells these stories but reconnects them to the temples and monuments that still stand today, offering a fresh look at the most visited sites of Egypt.
