All cultures make meaning out of the world around them by weaving together stories, experiences, and metaphors in complex ways. In a world that is inherently mysterious and infinite, myths are one way human cultures make sense out of the unknown and unknowable, of delight and of fear.

In this lecture, with cultural anthropologists Amy Harper and Elizabeth Marino, you'll learn how anthropologists conceive of myth across the highly varied stories that are created by different cultures. We will explore whether myths can be considered "true" or "untrue"; and talk about a handful of specific myths that are told and retold in particular circumstances to pass on knowledge, to explain the world around us, and to highlight cultural values.

The book that I read was called Dreamer....This is a movie by the way. For all you horse fans out there, this is the book for you. This story is about Cale Crane, who lives in Kentucky, on a horse farm, with no horses. None. Ben, Cale's dad, works with horses on the racetrack. He checks the horses for injuries. When Cale finally gets to go to work with him she gets the feel of horse fever....Ben doesn't want this life for her, being with horses. Pop, Cale's grandpa, puts tons of horse stories into Cale behind Cale's dad. Cale is determined to get a horse someday. When they go to a horse race and a horse gets injured the Crane's take it in to take care of it. her name is Sonya. Sonyador is her full name. It means Dreamer. Will Cale get her dream horse? Read Dreamer before summer gets out!!!!!...I recommend it!!!!
