The Gilgamesh epic is one of the world’s oldest legends. The story was first carved onto clay tablets in Mesopotamia. Its message of compassion and friendship along with its view of how the world came to be have made the story enduring. Older students read the original, more mature version in Omnibus to compare it with Scripture. This version will give any student a great head start and delight the reader with the beautiful illustrations and the elements of story that make this tale a wonder still today.
This third book will follow Gilgamesh in his quest for immortality through a dangerous journey. As he’s mourning the loss of his friend, his determination to succeed is strong. But will he?
