This is a short, but full-bodied, guide into Norse Mythology. Detailing the different worlds, gods, and culture, there is something here for everyone. It is not a thesis, so don't expect tomes of information. Instead, it will whet your appetite and show you where to look for further information. Straightforward, clear and concise, recommended by me for anyone interested in knowing more. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
