1 in stock


A selection of Norwegian folktales chosen by Sigrid Undset, ‘True and Untrue and Other Norse Tales’ is based on the classic folklore collected by Peter Christian Asbjornsen and Jorgen Moe. These wonderful stories tell of worlds similar to our own, worlds with love and hatred, sorrow and joy, humor and pathos. Beginning with brothers named True and Untrue, the book takes readers through tales of princes and princesses, giants and trolls, husband and wives, and a castle that is “East o’ the Sun and West o’ the Moon.” Strikingly illustrated by Frederick T. Chapman while under fire in Italy during the Second World War and with a remarkable forward by Undset, ‘True and Untrue and Other Norse Tales’ contains a story for everyone.

Paperback, 5 1/4″ x 7 3/4″, 253 pages, by Sigrid Undset.
