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).
