About the Book
Tales of the Persian Past: Illustrated Legendary Stories - The Kayanian Dynasty, Part 2 is the continuation from Part I of the book, that ended with the miraculous disappearance of King Kay Khushru. This portion of the book addresses several interesting episodes during the reigns of Kay Lohrasp and Kay Gushtasp - the prominent ones being the appearance of the Prophet Zarathushtra in King Gushtasp's court, the seven trials of Esfandiyar, the duel between the invincible Esfandiyar and the legendary hero Rostam, and the deceptive plot carved by Shaghad to kill his brother Rostam. All these and other fascinating stories are textualized in an abbreviated manner, along with the related colorful illustrations - ones that have originated hundreds of years ago, as miniature paintings.
I trust that you will enjoy the perusal of this coffee table book, as much as I did while composing it.
