The world of the Norse men was rich in poetry, legend, and song. Whenever there was a feast to greet guests, to celebrate weddings, or for the safe return of voyagers, the bards, or “skalds,” were called to tell stories and sing songs. Their stories were colorful and dramatic, telling of kings and queens, princes and princesses, duels and battles, and great sea journeys. They portrayed heroes to admire and villains to fear and made listeners tremble and gasp with tales of love and daring, power, and cunning.

These stories of Norse heroes, beautifully retold by the renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt, are drawn from the collection of tales compiled by Saxo Grammaticus (c.1150–1220), the Danish historian, and other early Scandinavian writers. Included is an informative introduction.

These stories are particularly useful for teaching Norse Mythology in Waldorf class 4 (ages 9–10). Norse Hero Tales was previously published as The King and the Green Angelica.

About the Author:

Isabel Wyatt (1901-1992) was born in England and spent many years teaching young children. Until her retirement in 1965, she was codirector of studies at Hawkwood College, Gloucestershire. She wrote numerous books for children.

Review:

"The eight stories in this collection are beautifully retold by Isabel Wyatt... These stories will keep your children spellbound, give them mighty adventures to act out and provide soul food for the adults with their eternal truths and inspiring bravery... I am very pleased that these tales are once more available for a new generation of readers." --Anna Phillips, New View, Autumn 2010. 'With engaging style, the daily life and culture of the Norsemen are reflected within stories, and all the drama of the conflicts and passions are well told. The gods are mentioned in passing as the deities for respecting, but not for interference in the daily lives of mortal man. This results in a different flavour and understanding of the Norsemen's culture with tales of heroes to admire, villains to fear, teales of love and daring, power and cunning... The stories are broken into episodes, and so useful for reading aloud, as well as personal reading.' -- School Librarian 'The world of the Norsemen was rich in 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 stroies and sing songs... The stories in this book, retold by storyteller Isabel Wyatt, are drawn from the collection of tales compiled of 13th-century Danish historian Saxo Grammaticus and other early Scandinavian writers.' --Human Givens, 2010
