Asgard Stories

Here is a simple book containing the stories of Norse mythology for a younger reading audience.  The short narratives are useful for any study involving the Vikings or as a comparison against other religious beliefs.

From the book’s preface:

The interest shown at present in the teaching of myths to children seems to call for some such simple volume, giving the Norse myths in suitable form for use with pupils as well as for the children’s home reading. There are various collections of the Greek tales, but the books dealing with the Norse myths seem to be more or less cumbered with detail, and, therefore, not adapted to very young readers.
