Books that Changed My Life: The Nart Sagas

Nart Sagas of the Caucasus
Nart Sagas from the Caucasus: Myths and Legends from the Circassians, Abazas, Abkhaz, and Ubykhs, ed. John Colarusso

Wow. The more ancient Indo-European source of Greek and Roman myths. A historical-mythical missing link from the little-known Caucuses mountains (where we get the word “Caucasians). This book rocked my concepts about “white” ancestry and opened a whole new path of inquiry about the origins of our current situation.

You’ve got to dig deep into the footnotes to grok the significance of these stories, but it’s worth it.
