<B>Norse Hero Tales: The King and the Green Angelica and Other Stories </B><I> </I>, WYATT, ISABEL
1 Norse Hero Tales: The King and the Green Angelica and Other Stories
WYATT, ISABEL
0863157602 / 9780863157608 Paperback 
The world of the Norsemen -- men of the North -- was rich in poetry, legend and song. Whenever there was a feast to greet guests, or celebrate weddings or the safe return of voyagers, the bards or 'skalds' were called on to tell stories and sing songs.

These stories were colourful and dramatic. They told of kings and queens, princes and princesses, duels and battles, and great journeys across the sea. They offered heroes to admire, villains to fear, and made the listeners tremble and gasp with tales of love and daring, power and cunning. Stories, like the ones in this book, were their window on the whole world.

These stories of Norse heroes, beautifully retold by the renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt, are drawn from the collection of tales compiled by Saxo Grammaticus and other early Scandinavian writers.Includes an informative introduction.

These stories are particularly useful for those teaching Norse mythology in Steiner-Waldorf Class 4 (age 9-10).

Soul of Russia, GILCHRIST, CHERRY
2 Soul of Russia
GILCHRIST, CHERRY
0863156312 / 9780863156311 2008 Paperback 
30 colour illustrations In the heart of Russia, fairy stories, folk art and customs still carry hints of the old ways of perceiving the gods and spirits of home and nature. The Russian soul, whether in the city or the country, remains open to the Slavic way of life and its ancient beliefs. Such traditions link human life to the landscape and rhythms of nature in ways that have been lost elsewhere. 'Soul', dusha, is of prime importance to Russians, and not only reigns supreme in their art and culture, but is essential to understanding the Russian outlook on the world.Many Russians, even those trained in modern schools, such as archaeologists, scientists and doctors, are open to embracing this heritage of myth and the mysteries of the universe, and include it in their everyday outlook. Cherry Gilchrist has visited Russia over fifty times, and researched its traditional lore, arts and crafts, often staying deep in the Russian countryside. Weaving her firsthand experience with a thorough knowledge of history and culture, she invites us to enter the world of the Russian soul and discover its magic.
