Our Father’Godsaga: Retold for the Young
Viktor Rydberg and William P. Reaves, 223 pages
An epic introduction to Norse mythology for students of all ages. Based on the research of the 19th century Swedishscholar, Viktor Rydberg, Our Fathers’ Godsaga retells the mythology of Northern Europe. These are tales told by Vikings, tales of gods and giants, elves and dwarves, and how their interaction and wars affect the first generations of human beings in the North. This is an original translation of Viktor Rydberg’Fädernas Gudasaga, his own retelling of the complete Norse mythic epic, first published in 1887, and many times since. The text includes a complete catalog of mythic names and the original artwork from the 1911 German translation. This classic Swedish text appears in English now for the first time.
