The novella-length compilation of 28 short Norse folk tales keeps the order that the poems are in within the original compilation of the Poetic Edda. It also stays true to the content, without additions or changes to the story line. Some of the tales' events overlap, or are telling another tale slightly differently. This shows how the poems have evolved into other tales, as there are many variations of the same tale within Northern Europe.
Our journey begins with stories from Asgard, the world of the Gods, and then turns to look at events in our world, bringing us stories of tragic heroes, cursed gold and - of course - love.
18 illustrations accompany the book.

If you're interested in Norse mythology and want to read on some of the adventures, this is a good book to choose. It short tales on some of the Gods, goddesses and other characters from the folklore. If you're looking for details on the various dieties, this is not the book for you. This book is more for those who want short tales on some of their lives. The book is a great light read especially as a break from your other readings.
