Tales of Norse Mythology

Stan Lee

Scandinavians of the Viking Age explored the mysteries of life through their sagas. Folklorist Helene Adeline Guerber brings to life the gods and goddesses, giants and dwarves, and warriors and monsters of these stories. Ranging from the comic to the tragic, these legends tell of passion, love, friendship, pride, courage, strength, loyalty and betrayal. Each volume in the Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions series features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in an exquisitely designed, bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and a silk-ribbon bookmark.
