Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Realm of Norse Mythology!
Do you know what Norse mythology is? Are you interested in learning more about it at a beginner's level? Would you like to expand your horizons when it comes to your mythologies?
Norse mythology is a belief system that was created by the Scandinavians, Vikings, which was adopted by many other settlements in their area. It depicted the gods and goddesses as beings who were hard warriors and able to take on dragons and serpents and was overall a very warrior-oriented belief system.
However, the people of that time were not as violent and brutal as most would like to believe. They were vilified by the other religions of the era so that those religions would not lose followers. So, if you're interested in learning about people who were not quite what many people paint them as, and learn more about the creation of the world through the Norse belief system, then listen to this book!
Not only is the Norse world unlike any other world you'll hear about in the history books, it's packed full of interesting tidbits that you might recognize from stories and movies you've seen recently.
You'll find a lot of useful information in this book pertaining to Norse mythology.
