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.
