Lift the veil of ancient goddesses and you will likely find the hidden Serpent Goddess. The goddesses of the ancient world - Isis, Athena, Lilith, Medusa, Lady White, Melusine, Ix Chel, Mami Wata, Benten, and the Nagini - share many serpentine aspects. They are all forms of the ancient Serpent Goddess, a symbol of royal power, prosperity, and renewal. Goddess in the Grass examines the multivalent symbolism of the Serpent Goddess and reveals her origins as the life-giving, death-dealing Great Goddess.

This updated edition includes additions to the dictionary of over 125 forms of the Serpent Goddess, from Asia, Africa, Europe, the Americas, and Oceania.

A wonderful supplement to any course in Mythology or Women's Studies, and a captivating read for anyone with an interest in the history of belief systems.
