The world of the Norsemen was rich in poetry, legend and song. Whenever there was a feast to greet guests, or celebrate weddings or the safe return of voyagers, the bards or 'skalds' were called on to tell stories and sing songs.

These stories were colourful and dramatic. They told of kings and queens, princes and princesses, duels and battles, and great journeys across the sea. They offered heroes to admire, villains to fear, and made the listeners tremble and gasp with tales of love and daring, power and cunning. Sagas, like the ones in these two books, were their window on the whole world.

Both volumes of NORSE HERO TALES, NORSE MYTHS AND VIKING LEGENDS and LEGENDS OF THE NORSE KINGS are beautifully retold by the renowned storyteller Isabel Wyatt. She was inspired from the collection of tales compiled by Saxo Grammaticus and other early Scandinavian writers. The Norse Myths are taught in Grade 4 (age 9) in Waldorf schools worldwide.

Softcover. 284 and 159pages respectively. Other titles in the Isabel Wyatt Collection sold separately.
