Overview

This edition is annotated, and has been formatted for your NOOK.

Master storyteller Padraic Colum's rich, musical voice captures all the magic and majesty of the Norse sagas in his retellings of the adventures of the gods and goddesses who lived in the Northern paradise of Asgard before the dawn of history.

Here are the matchless tales of All-Father Odin, who crosses the Rainbow Bridge to walk among men in Midgard and sacrifices his right eye to drink from the Well of Wisdom; of Thor, whose mighty hammer defends Asgard; of Loki, whose mischievous cunning leads him to treachery against the gods; of giants, dragons, dwarfs and Valkyries; and of the terrible last battle that destroyed their world.

These ancient stories from Northern Europe, which make up one of the great myth cycles of Western civilization, spring to life in The Children of Odin. This classic volume, first published in 1920 and reissued in 1962, is now available for the first time in paperback, illustrated with the original line drawings by Willy Pogany, to inspire a new generation of readers.

The late Padraic Colum was a poet, playwright, founder of the Irish Review and a leader of the Irish Renaissance, but he is perhaps best known today for his outstanding books for children. He was awarded the Regina Medal in 1961 for his "distinguished contribution to children's literature," honoring works like The Children's Homer, The Golden Fleece (a Newbery Honor Book), The Arabian Nights, The King of Ireland's Son and Roofs of Gold.

    Good book

    I read this book when I was in high school and was instantly captivated by the stories of Northern lore. I recommend this book for those who are new to Norse mythology or simply love to study the stories

    Arena

    The arena is a sunken hollow in the ground with stone bleachers ringing the circular pit. The outside of the pit is sand with straw dummies and weapon racks lining the wall. In the center, a lush, dense garden hides summoned monsters and opponents. Spruce trees shadow hornet nests and buckets of hot water. Poison ivy shrouds bushes. Swinging logs attack unwary people and fog makers create a thick cloud throughout the mini forest.
