Myths and Legends of China is a book by British sinologist Edward T.C. Werner, first published in 1922. The author consulted mostly Chinese sources to splice together this broad look at Chinese traditional folklore, related to all three of the main Chinese religions; Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism. Werner covers such topics as the evolution of Chinese cosmology, and the enormous pantheon of native Chinese Gods, Goddesses, and Immortals. This makes a great read for folklore fans and lovers of Chinese lore.

This book has 118,728 words, 192 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1922.
