Joseph Campbell, arguably the greatest mythologist of our time, was certainly one of our greatest storytellers. Hero's Journey recounts his own quest and conveys the excitement of his life-long exploration of our mythic traditions, which he called 'the one great story of mankind'. This lyrical book interweaves conversations with Campbell and some of the people he inspired, including poet Robert Bly, anthropologist Angeles Arrien, filmmaker David Kennard, musician John Densmore, and others.
