Natasha E. Gomes is an author of historical fantasy fiction. She researches mythology and lore for her series called The Wanderers - using the themes and stories as inspiration.

"Wise Giant"

Wise Giant - Giant Lore From Around The World

Looming, imposing, magnificent, massive giant figures have stomped their way into the human imagination for thousands of years. 

Sometimes they are depicted as benevolent, wise, and helpful: aiding humans in times of war and struggle. 

In these myths the giants are known to teach valuable lessons, such as cultivation and agriculture. 

They are often associated with mysterious rock formations, megalithic structures, or mountains, and as such they are depicted as enjoying throwing rocks, stacking rocks, and sometimes are even responsible for earthquakes or other natural phenomena. 

These are my favourite stories…much like the BFG of Roald Dahl. Take a look inside and see what there is to discover.
