A Survey of Solar Mythology, Folklore, Customs, Worship, Festivals, and Superstition, by William Tyler Olcott. Sun worship, in its most primitive form, lies at the foundation of our earliest mythologies and religions. This book is a collection of myths from around the world and from all ages. From the more familiar Egyptian, Greek, and Norse worship of the sun, to the lesser known mythologies of the Pacific Islands, Native Americans, and peoples of the Far East, this book gives a comprehensive overview of man’s fascination with the sun.
