  • Description or summary of the book: Rooted in an oral tradition, fantastic sagas of Norse mythology found their way into print seven centuries ago, in documents known as the Eddas. This book presents 17 of the most popular tales, from the creation of the world to the death of the gods and the world's destruction.Masterfully retold, the legends include Odin's trip to Mimer in search of knowledge, the making of Thor's hammer, the loss of Idun's wondrous apples, and the task of securing the dreaded Fenris-wolf with unbreakable silken twine devised from 'the sound of a cat's footsteps, the roots of the mountains, the breath of a fish, and the sinew of a bear.' Here, too, are accounts of 'The Wooing of Gerd,' 'Thor Goes a Fishing,' 'The Death of Balder,' 'How Loki Was Punished,' 'The Twilight of the Gods,' and 'The New Earth.'
