Product Description

Explore Captivating Myths of the Norse Gods and Heroes


The stories from Norse mythology linger in our culture today. Four days of our week are named after members of the Norse pantheon (Tyr, Woden (Odin), Thor and Frigg). Wagner’s Ring Cycle has kept one version of one of the great Norse stories alive in the minds of music lovers. Readers of modern fantasy will find many echoes of the Norse tales as well. Something in these old and puzzling stories still has the power to move and unsettle us and to inspire new acts of creation.

This book will give you a brief introduction to some of the best-known myths found in the primary sources. This book includes a glossary of names in the back in case you need help keeping track of a rather large cast of characters. Enjoy your explorations!

Within this book, you'll find the following Norse myths and topics covered


  • The Creation of the Worlds
  • The Building of Asgard
  • Why Odin Has One Eye and Tyr Has One Hand
  • The Mead of Poetry
  • Loki the Thief
