Here are thirty-two classic myths that bring the pre-Christian Scandinavian world vividly to life. Gods, humans, and
monstrous beasts engage in prodigious drinking bouts, contests of strength, greedy schemes for gold, and lusty
encounters. Included are tales of Odin, the wisest and most fearsome of all the gods; Thor, the thundering powerhouse;
and the exquisite mafic-wielding Freyja. Their stories bear witness to the courage, passion, and boundless spirit that
were hallmarks of the Norse world.
