The Children of Odin: Nordic Gods and Heroes (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 14 reviews.

A very poor quality rendering of a really delightful telling of the Edda. The OCR system routinely mis-translated characters and generally shattered the layout of woodcuts throughout the text. This version should be corrected, or, pulled from distribution by Barnes & Noble -- it damages their brand to offer such material... even when free.
