Icelandic Folk Tales

by Hjörleifur Helgi Stefánsson, Iceland,
illustrated by Tord Sandström Fahlström, Iceland.
In Iceland every rock, hot spring, and waterfall seems to have its own story. Cruel man-eating trolls rub shoulders with beautiful elves, whose homes are hidden from mortal view. Vengeful ghosts envy the living, seeking to drag lost loves into their graves—or they may simply demand a pinch of your snuff. Some of the stories in this collection are classic tales, while others are completely new to English translation, combining to create the finest and most authentic Icelandic folk tales to be published in the English language.
