From its first beginnings in a world of primordial ice floes, the story of the Viking gods is one of continual struggle against etins and monsters, but it is a tale of humour and triumph as well as of grit and tragedy. The Norse myths are justly famous for a host of vivid characters including the wise and enigmatic Odin, the bluff strongman Thor, and the incorrigible trickster Loki. In the first major retelling for a generation, storyteller and historian Thor Ewing rediscovers the brisk vitality with which these ancient myths were told in the earliest sources. With 45 stunning b&w illustrations inspired by Viking art.

Norse myths have long fascinated millions around the world. Tales of Norse Gods like Thor and Loki have sustained the imaginations of adult and young people alike, even into modern times.

In Norse Mythology: Fascinating Myths and Legends of Norse Gods, Heroes, and Viking Beliefs, you will be exposed to the original tales of the Gods; the tales that modern depictions are ultimately inspired by. Norse myth has become a part of us in ways that we do not fully appreciate. Indeed, the Norse God Thor has come to embody the ideal of strength and masculinity. The trickster God Loki, on the other hand, has come to represent some of the more sinister and unpredictable elements of Man. In fact, the Norse used their Gods to embody those aspects of Man's own nature that were often at war.

The people at the heart of Norse civilization - living in modern-day Scandinavia, Northern Germany, as well as other areas of Norse settlement like Iceland and the British Isles - these people were part of a culture so far removed from how we think and perceive today as to be almost unrecognizable. But that does not mean that you must struggle to understand Norse legends and the Vikings who believed in them.In Norse Mythology: Fascinating Myths and Legends of Norse Gods, Heroes, and Viking Beliefs, you will learn everything there is to learn about Norse mythology. You will learn the different groups of living things that existed in the universe, how the universe was divided into nine worlds, who the major Gods and Goddesses were, who some of the important heroes were, and how the speakers of Old Norse recorded the feats of gods and men in books called sagas. These sagas told the tales of the great figures of Norse legend. In Norse Mythology: Fascinating Myths and Legends of Norse Gods, Heroes, and Viking Beliefs, you will learn some of these tales including: The Tale of Odin's Eye and Mimir's Head The Unusual Wedding of Freyja Loki and His Strange Children The Death of Baldr The Kidnapping of Idun The Birth of Sigurd And Ragnarok: the Twilight of the Gods Buy now to learn more than you ever dreamed about Norse Gods and Goddesses and Viking beliefs.
