1 Scandinavian Folk Belief and Legend
Edited by Reimund Kvideland and Henning K. Sehmsdorf
429 pages, 10 illustrations, paperback / softcover, University of Minnesota Press
An entertaining collection of over 400 folk tales of legends, stories, and magic. Translated from the original Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish, this highly acclaimed work is perfect for bedside or fireside reading.

"This rich collection of about 400 folk narratives makes for wonderful and instructive reading. The translations are so convincing that the reader all but forgets that the texts were not uttered in English." —Journal of Folklore Research

"This volume will be warmly welcomed by scholars and the general public alike. A stupendous investment of skills and time." —Scandinavian-American Bulletin

"Readers may turn to Scandinavian Folk Belief and Legend secure in the knowledge that they will receive an accurate and thorough picture of the subject, especially of the Norwegian, Danish, and Swedish traditions." —American Anthropologist

"Scandinavian Folk Belief and Legend is a very readable work which is both informative and interesting. It is also a useful reference tool. The entries are both diverse and illuminating for introductory classes in folklore." —Folklore Forum

"It is impossible, in a brief review, to do justice to the richness and range of the materials presented in this veritable cornucopia. We owe the editors and the University of Minnesota Press a great debt for making this wonderful collection available in English." —New York Folklore
Price: 19.95 USD
