When I think about mythic heroes for many years the first name that came to mind was Sinbad Sinbad the sailor In his days as an adventurer he went on seven fantastic voyages which earned him fame for the rest of his life Yet now in retrospect I no longer consider him to be the great adventurer that I saw him as in my childhood On his seven voyages Sinbad encountered every obstacle one could possibly think of He and his crew met up with a fish so large many mistook it for an island an island where rocs enormous birds their eggs were often mistaken for buildings still lived cannibals giants and even herds of angry elephants On each and everyone one of his famed voyages he was shipwrecked alone and faced with some hideous danger On each and everyone he overcame the odds destroyed his foes and returned home with riches beyond the imagination As a child the stories of Sinbads voyages were wildly entertaining In each one there was adventure danger money and the hero always came home in one piece Now that I look back at the stories there are some parts of Sinbads fantastic tales that bother me First of all Sinbad never set out in search of adventure These amazing things just seemed to always happen to him He normally set out as a merchant carrying goods from one exotic land to another Yet on each of these trips something incredible happened to him and his crew resulting in a dead crew and a fantastic story for Sinbad the sailor Secondly all of Sinbads great adventures occurred sequentially In other words he went immediately from one adventure to another without so much as a nap in between This man never had a quiet boat ride in the entire span of time in which his adventures took place
