Favorite Norse Myths
The oldest stories from around the world tell about the "beginnings of things." This collection of thrilling tales of the Far North is no different. Narratives from the Land of the Midnight Sun describe winters as terrible times of cold and gloom, in a region where jagged mountain peaks tower over deep valleys that are home to giants and other spirits.
Specially written for young readers, these rousing Norse myths bring to life a land populated by brave warriors, cruel giants, mischievous dwarfs, and other fantastic beings. Sixteen tales include accounts of "How Odin Lost His Eye," "The Dwarf's Gifts," "The Giantess Who Would Not," "Loki's Children," "The Magic Apples," and eleven other enchanting sagas.
