about this book

Here are thirty-two classic Norse myths that bring the ancient Viking world to life. Beautifully retold by Kevin Crossley-Holland, these tales vividly depict the courage, cruelty, and passions that were the hallmarks of the old Norse world.

"Crossley-Holland's beautiful retelling of tales...features Odin, Thor, the berserks, Loki, and many more fascinating figures in the cast of Gods."--Booklist

"An excellent introduction, notes and a glossary provide mythological and historical backgrounds and suggest parallels with myths in other parts of the world."--Denver Post
