Isabel Wyatt is a gifted storyteller, able to stay true to a myth or legend and yet make it accessible for children. In Norse Myths and Viking Legends, Wyatt tells of the Norse world and their rich poetry, legend and song.
Whenever there was a feast to greet guests, to celebrate weddings or the safe return of voyagers, the bards were called upon to tell stories and sing songs. This is a collection of those Norse stories.
Norse Myths and Viking Legends brings together three epic sagas - 'The Saga of King Ragnar Goatskin', 'The Dream of King Alfdan' and 'Thorkill of Iceland' - alongside other dramatic tales in this exciting collection of stories.
These thrilling tales of war and love, power and cunning, magic and destiny are artfully retold by Isabel Wyatt. The book will be particularly useful for those teaching Norse mythology in Homeschool or around classes 4 or 5.
Previously published as three books: Thorkill of Iceland, Legends of the Norse Kings and Norse Hero Tales and now in a single magnificent volume.
