Norse Mythology A to Z, Third Edition examines the characters, objects, and places whose stories make up the folklore of the Norse people, who lived in the region known today as Scandinavia. Passed down through the generations by word of mouth and finally written down in the 13th century and later, these myths include tales of gods and goddesses; heroes, giants, and dwarfs; and serpents and dragons that inhabit enchanted realms. This colorful volume brings to life many of these Nordic myths.

Entries include:

  • The most famous gods and goddesses, such as Odin, Thor, and Freya
  • Plants and animals important to Norse mythology, such as the oak tree and the eagle
  • Stories and poems, such as "Treasures of the Dwarfs" and the Poetic Edda
  • And much more.


Full-color photographs, illustrations, and maps. Bibliography. Cross-references. Index.
