A joyful mix of folklore and fairy tales from Scandinavia, mining the Viking heritage for common sense of the everyday folk.

Character-forming moral fables, Viking and Nordic folk and fairy tales take the magic of the natural world and combine it with the practical common sense of the everyday. Good folk are rewarded for their hard work, the honest and the faithful are valued by the gods in a series of themed sections: treasured tales of Bravery, Beasts and Animals, Transformation and Trickery, Trolls and Giants, Tales of Wind, Snow and Sea, all collected in a gorgeous gold-foiled and embossed hardback to treasure and enjoy.

The Flame Tree Gothic Fantasy, Classic Stories and Epic Tales collections bring together the entire range of myth, folklore and modern short fiction. Highlighting the roots of suspense, supernatural, science fiction and mystery stories, the books in Flame Tree Collections series are beautifully presented, perfect as a gift and offer a lifetime of reading pleasure.
