The rich mythology of the pagan Norsemen continues to fascinate today. An introduction to the beliefs of the Icelandic settlers is followed by a retelling of the most famous stories of the gods of asgard. "The World of the Viking Gods" contains an informative introduction, outlining the world-view, ideas and beliefs of the pagan Icelanders, followed by an account of the creation of individual gods. In the second half, the stories of the gods are retold through the humorous adventures of the thunder god, Thor, and the darker events surrounding the death of Baldur, culminating in the apocalyptic vision of ragnarok - the end of the world and its rebirth.
