Summary:

Hall has captured the true spirit of the ancient age through her vibrant portrayal of voyage in this book. It includes historical explorations of unknown Islands. These adventurous tales, including the discovery of America (named Vinland) by the Norse, are a gripping chronicle of the human desire for exploration and a tantalizing glimpse of what would many centuries later become the New World.

Summary:

Herein are genuine Viking tales and mini-sagas like: HARALD'S BATTLE, ERIC THE RED, LEIF (Ericsson) AND HIS NEW LAND, WINELAND THE GOOD and many others. In ancient Iceland every midsummer there was a great meeting. Men from all over the country came and made laws. During the day there were rest times, when no business was going on. Then some skald would take his harp and walk to a large stone or a knoll and stand on it and begin a song of some brave deed of an old Norse hero. At the first sound of the harp and the voice, men would come running from all directions, crying out: "A skald! A skald! A saga!" There they would stand for hours listening and shouting applause. When the skald was tired, another would take his place. The best skalds were well travelled and visited many people. Their songs made them welcome everywhere. They were always honoured with good seats at a feast and were given many rich gifts. Even the King of Norway was known to sometimes send across the water to Iceland for a skald to attend his court. Initially these tales, or sagas, were not written for few men wrote or read in those days. When at last people began to read and write, they first recorded the sagas on sheepskin, or vellum. Many of these old vellum books have been saved for hundreds of years and are now in museums in Norway. Some leaves have been lost, some are torn and all are yellow and crumpled. But they are precious. They tell us all that we know about that olden time. There are the very words that the men of Iceland wrote so long ago-stories of kings and of battles and of ship-sailing. Some of those old stories have been told in this book. 33% of the publisher's profit will be donated to charity.

Summary:

Iceland is a little country far north in the cold sea. Men found it and went there to live more than a thousand years ago. During the warm season they used to fish and make fish-oil and hunt sea-birds and gather feathers and tend their sheep and make hay. But the winters were long and dark and cold. Men and women and children stayed in the house and carded and spun and wove and knit. A whole family sat for hours around the fire in the middle of the room. That fire gave the only light. Shadows flitted in the dark corners. Smoke curled along the high beams in the ceiling. The children sat on the dirt floor close by the fire. The grown people were on a long narrow bench that they had pulled up to the light and warmth. Everybody's hands were busy with wool. The work left their minds free to think and their lips to talk. What was there to talk about? The summer's fishing, the killing of a fox, a voyage to Norway. But the people grew tired of this little gossip. Fathers looked at their children and thought:"They are not learning much. What will make them brave and wise? What will teach them to love their country and old Norway? Will not the stories of battles, of brave deeds, of mighty men, do this?"So, as the family worked in the red fire-light, the father told of the kings of Norway, of long voyages to strange lands, of good fights. And in farmhouses all through Iceland these old tales were told over and over until everybody knew them and loved them. Some men could sing and play the harp. This made the stories all the more interesting. People called such men "skalds," and they called their songs "sagas."Every midsummer there was a great meeting. Men from all over Iceland came to it and made laws. During the day there were rest times, when no business was going on. Then some skald would take his harp and walk to a large stone or a knoll and stand on it and begin a song of some brave deed of an old Norse hero. At the first sound of the harp and the voice, men came running from all directions, crying out:"The skald! The skald! A saga!"They stood about for hours and listened. They shouted applause. When the skald was tired, some other man would come up from the crowd and sing or tell a story. As the skald stepped down from his high position, some rich man would rush up to him and say:"Come and spend next winter at my house. Our ears are thirsty for song."So the best skalds traveled much and visited many people. Their songs made them welcome everywhere. They were always honored with good seats at a feast. They were given many rich gifts. Even the King of Norway would sometimes send across the water to Iceland, saying to some famous skald:"Come and visit me. You shall not go away empty-handed. Men say that the sweetest songs are in Iceland. I wish to hear them."These tales were not written. Few men wrote or read in those days. Skalds learned songs from hearing them sung. At last people began to write more easily. Then they said:"These stories are very precious. We must write them down to save them from being forgotten."After that many men in Iceland spent their winters in writing books. They wrote on sheepskin; vellum, we call it. Many of these old vellum books have been saved for hundreds of years, and are now in museums in Norway. Some leaves are lost, some are torn, all are yellow and crumpled. But they are precious. They tell us all that we know about that olden time. There are the very words that the men of Iceland wrote so long ago--stories of kings and of battles and of ship-sailing. Some of those old stories I have told in this book.

Summary:

'A terrific, detailed introduction of these wonderful stories and the pantheon of characters in them . . . their writing is vivid and lively . . . a great addition to any library.' Rosi Hollinbeck, San Francisco Book Review 'With recent volumes, such as Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology and J.R.R. Tolkien's posthumously published The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrún, appealing more to readers strictly interested in creative takes on classic Norse tales, this title attracts new readers by offering solid retellings and contextual information that serve as a valuable introduction to this rich tradition.' Library Journal While the main focus of the book is on telling the stories, some scene-setting is provided at the beginning and each chapter also contains a section of commentary to explain what is going on and its significance. The Norse myths have gained widespread attention in the English-speaking world, partly through a Scandinavian diaspora, especially in the USA) and partly through a great interest in the myths and legends which lie behind Viking activity. Tolkien's 'Middle Earth', too, as seen in both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films is heavily indebted to Germanic/Norse mythology. The Whittock's book fills a gap in the market between academic publications and the interest-generating (but confusing) products of Hollywood and comic-culture. This is an accessible book, which both provides a retelling of these dramatic stories and also sets them in context so that their place within the Viking world can be understood. The book explores Norse myths (stories, usually religious, which explain origins, why things are as they are, the nature of the spiritual) and legends (stories which attempt to explain historical events and which may involve historical characters but which are told in a non-historical way and which often include supernatural events).

Summary:

Viking Tales BY Hall, Jennie, 1875-1921 illustrators by Lambdin, Victor Ralph, 1876-1963 Content The baby -- The tooth thrall -- Olaf's farm -- Olaf's fight with Havard -- Foes'-fear -- Harald is king -- Harald's battle -- Gyda's saucy message -- The sea fight -- King Harald's wedding -- King Harald goes west-over-seas -- Homes in Iceland -- Eric the Red -- Leif and his new land -- Wineland the good. Story Plot: Nights were long in Iceland winters of long ago. A whole family sat for hours around the fire in the middle of the room. That fire gave the only light. Shadows flitted in the dark corners. Smoke curled along the high beams of the ceiling. The children sat on the dirt floor close by the fire. The grown people were on a long narrow bench that they had pulled up to the light and warmth. Everybody's hands were busy with wool. As the family worked in the red fire-light, the father told of the kings of Norway, of long voyages to strange lands, of good fights. And in farmhouses all through Iceland these old tales were told over and over until everybody knew them and loved them. Men who could sing and play the harp were called "skalds," and they called their songs "sagas." Eventually these stories were written down on sheepskin or vellum so that we can enjoy them today. We follow the fortunes of Harald from the time he is acknowledged by his father as a baby and given his own thrall at the cutting of his first tooth, through his exploits as a viking adventurer, to his crowning as King of Norway. It is when Harald is King of Norway that population pressures at home and eagerness for adventure and booty from other lands combine to drive some of the bolder Vikings to set forth from their native land. Sailing ever westward across the Atlantic, they hop along the chain of islands that loosely connects Norway with America-Orkneys and Shetlands, Faeroes, Iceland, and Greenland. It is from link to link of this chain that the characters in our story sail in search of home and adventure. Discoveries are made by accident. Ships are driven by the wind into unknown ports, resulting in landings and settlements in Iceland, Greenland, and America. The crude courage of these men and strangeness of their adventures appeal strongly to children, while their love of truth, hardy endurance, and faithfulness to the promised word make them characters to emulate. Suitable for children ages 9 and up to read to themselves and for children as young as 6 as a read-aloud

But after many hard fights on land and sea, after many men had died and many had fled away to other lands, King Harald won, and he made the men that were yet[100] in the islands take the oath, and he left his earls to rule over them. ...I should like to stand on a hill and look around on a wide land and think, This is all ours, and out upon a rough sea and think, Far off there are our foes and they dare not come over to us.

Summary:

Ari Thorgilsson builds a cargo ship, the Uxi, in a desperate attempt to save the family from poverty and ruin. Ari sails it out of his home in the fjords of Norway to the Orkney Islands and then into the Irish Sea, where a chance encounter makes an enemy of Ivar the Younger, a son of the Danish Viking Ivar the Boneless. While pursued by Ivar the Younger, a storm drives the ship onto the rocky coast of a hostile land, where the ship is wrecked he and the crew are captured by native Britons. Execution or enslavement seem to be their fate. But there is yet hope, for Artgal, king of the British kingdom of Alt Clut, is in need of warriors. He promises Ari a new ship if he and his companions garrison a fortress on the border with the Picts to the north, while he takes an army to fight the Angles in the east. Ari and his friends accept the offer, and plunge into a year of intrigue and battle in the depths of the land that one day will be known as Scotland, testing their mettle and their commitment to their honor. A Pictish invasion seems to spell the end of Ari's dream of a new ship. And then a fleet of Danish Vikings sails into the River Clut to lay siege to Argtal's fortress, thrusting that dream well beyond his grasp. Or does it?

Summary:

This story is intended to speculate and look deep into the "other realm." The subject matter within this book will touch the topic of ghosts and paranormal activities; philosophy; multi-cultural religion through historical myths and records; quantum physics in relation to the study of condensates; spiritual beliefs founded by psychology; while also touching the topic of anthropology in terms of the history of man. In addition, we will be discussing how all of this is currently connected to a geographical destination that exists today. We will discuss topics that some people believe, and others do not. Some topics may be so fresh and new, difficulty may be found in believing any of it! In any event, the simple idea of all of these ideals coming together is extremely phenomenal and even entertaining - even if you are not a believer. Perhaps it will open new doors and make room for the exchanging of new ideas? Perhaps even you will be affected?"In addition: the main purpose of this book is to prove that angels exist, and separately, that messages are physically appearing in our landscape today that symbolizes the Apocalypse is coming - all with the use of photographic evidence to support these beliefs.

Summary:

Gregor grew up on a farm on the Dnieper River and knew only the seasons of the crops. Every year he waited anxiously for his Uncle Lars to make anchor on their shores and tell the tales of his adventures in "trading". Fighting and trading sounded much more exciting than his young sedentary life. The river called to him to learn of new places and peoples. Perhaps this year he might join his uncle's crew and experience more than the planting and harvest of his mundane life. After all, his Viking heritage could not be denied, he was destined to know valor before Valhalla. Years of fascination and study have resulted in this historical tale of adventure for first time author, William H. Pattison. He offers us this glimpse into the life of a young man, leaving his family and farm, engaging in a rite of passage suited to the setting in an ancient world.

Summary:

When Atli Helgason encounters a blind poet in the marketplace of Lundenwic shouting at a stormy sky about a lost treasure, his first thought is to walk by. He has no idea that his life is about to change forever. But something in the old man's ravings sparks a memory, for Atli's grandfather had told him a tale about a lost hoard of gold and silver -- a true tale of betrayal and stolen wealth exactly like the one falling from the old man's mouth. So on impulse, Atli accepts the poet's invitation to recount the full story in exchange for a meal.The poet not only knows the full tale, but he also knows where the treasure is hidden -- far off in the wastes of distant Scotland -- because he is one of those who buried it more than thirty years before. He offers to guide Atli to the hoard, but Atli and his companions have no ship to take them there, and the overland journey is far too perilous to risk on such a thin promise of wealth. Yet Atli and his friends are game for the sea voyage to Scotland. They steal a ship belonging to a Danish warlord, Sven Havardsson, who strikes out after them to recover the ship and seize the gold for himself.A harrowing race ensues that takes Atli and his ship, the Sea Hawk, to hostile Frankland, around the vast island of Britain, and into the depths of savage Scotland while they strive to stay one jump ahead of the merciless Sven.In Snorri's Gold, historical novelist Jason Vail brings readers another thrilling, non-stop tale of Viking action and adventure that you won't be able to put down until the end. Feel the wind and spray on your face as you accompany Atli and his companions aboard the nimble Sea Hawk as they sail around Britain in search of lost treasure.

Summary:

Continuing the theme of stories from northern lands, this volume concentrates on the Sagas from Viking isles, such as Iceland and The Faroe Isles. These forms are also known as family sagas, and were often told by the "skald" bards. For the most part these sagas take the form of prose narratives and are mostly based on historical events that took place in the 9th, 10th, and early 11th centuries. Many of these sagas are focused on history, especially genealogical and family history, and reflect the struggle and conflict that arose within the societies of the early generations of Island settlers. The stories in this volume are taken from various collections including Andrew Lang's Coloured Fairy Books, Jennie Hall's Viking Tales and Nora Kershaw's Stories and Ballads of the Far Past. They include original stories sourced from previous collectors such as Jón Árnason and collections such as Islandische Märchen and Neuisländischen Volksmärchen.

Summary:

This winter, siblings Ruairi and Dani Miller visit their grandmother in the legendary Viking island of Yondersaay. In less than twenty-four hours of their arrival, Ruairi is mistaken for the lost Boy King of Denmark, kidnapped by Vikings, and scheduled to be sacrificed at sundown. Granny isn't very pleased. But when when they are the only ones in town who fail to go "Viking," the three turn to Granny's extremely epic tales of the legends of Yondersaay, The Gifts of Odin, and King Dudo the Mightily Impressive for clues. But not all stories end happily, and Ruari, Dani, and Granny will have to write their own happy ending if things are to return to normal. The Princess Bride meets Vikings in this enchanted tale of high adventure, buried treasure, villainous treachery, violent ends, and - of course - true love. Aoife Lennon-Ritchie's debut middle grade novel, THE EXTREMELY EPIC VIKING TALE OF YONDERSAAY, is a humorous and heartwarming story for readers ages 9+.

Summary:

" Explores the historical rise of the literary fairy tale as genre in the late seventeenth century. In his examinations of key classical fairy tales, Zipes traces their unique metamorphoses in history with stunning discoveries that reveal their ideological relationship to domination and oppression. Tales such as Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and Rumplestiltskin have become part of our everyday culture and shapers of our identities. In this lively work, Jack Zipes explores the historical rise of the literary fairy tale as genre in the late seventeenth century and examines the ideological relationship of classic fairy tales to domination and oppression in Western society. The fairy tale received its most "mythic" articulation in America. Consequently, Zipes sees Walt Disney's Snow White as an expression of American male individualism, film and literary interpretations of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz as critiques of American myths, and Robert Bly's Iron John as a misunderstanding of folklore and traditional fairy tales. This book will change forever the way we look at the fairy tales of our youth.

Summary:

Asgard is a country, which Odin, Willy and Ve made for themselves. Odin populated it with his sons, the rare inhabitants of many other worlds (Njord, Freyr and Freya from Van and Loki from the Giants). The souls of the warriors who died with a sword in their hands also came to this country. The latter live in Valhalla and wait for the last battle. The Ases are gods who send protection to the Earth for people from the giants. The Ases observe the life of mankind. One of the main differences between the Viking religion and many other ones is the existence of some negative qualities for the gods. They are no longer considered infalliable as the Christian god. They are not absolutely good like the Chinese gods. The Ases bear (though in the future) responsibility for their atrocities, in contrast to the Greek Olympians.
