Werner published "Myths and Legends of China" in 1922 to elucidate the ideas and beliefs that governed the daily lives of the Chinese people prior to the 20th century. These provocative and fantastical tales of Chinese history, myth and legend draw from many ancient texts and offer a glimpse into a world dominated by tradition and superstition. These stories include the myths of stars, thunder, lightening, water and fire, and various gods, Dynasties and Emperors. It also explains the significance the Buddhism and Taoism, Confucius, yin and yang, dragons, New Year, Spirit Festivals, The Tao Te Ching and much more.
