Nuwa is a female legend from ancient times. She is the world-creating goddess, the origin of the Chinese nation as well as the chief goddess bringing bliss and protection to people. Nuwa gifted the Chinese people with earth and gave her everything to save them from natural disasters.
This is a myth rather than anything religious. It is a story that honours the female gender and tells of how women can hold up half of the sky (illustrating that they have an equal part play in society). This series of books introduces the most well-known Chinese myths that have entertained children in China for generations.
