Review by Publisher Summary 1

Retells thirty-two Scandinavian myths that have intrigued countless generations with stories of gods, giants, dwarfs, and monsters involved in the creation, development, and ultimate destruction of nine mortal and divine worlds

Review by Publisher Summary 2

With black-and-white drawings throughout, here are thirty-two classic myths that bring the pre-Christian Scandinavian world to life and bear witness to the courage, passion, and boundless spirit that were hallmarks of the Norse world. Gods, humans, and monstrous beasts engage in prodigious drinking bouts, contests of strength, greedy schemes for gold, and lusty encounters. Included are tales of Odin, the wisest and most fearsome of all the gods; Thor, the thundering powerhouse; and the exquisite mafic-wielding Freyja.
