About the Author
The Norroena Society was originally founded in the late 19th century by reknowned scholar and writer, Rasmus B. Anderson. Today, the Society has been reborn to present an alternative to mainstream academic treatments of Ásatrú traditions. Our goal is to continue the revival of this ancient belief system by offering a continually progressive scholarship aimed exclusively at rebuilding a religious foundation for our work. As we move forward, it is our sincerest hope that we shall spark the interests of all people everywhere in returning to their ancestral paths.

I delve in to the pages of this book and realise how amazing the lore is. The people who put this version of the Edda together really did it with some love. And it shows. This become so much more entrancing when you read this and realise that people did, and still do, use these tales as part of their religious practice. It IS an integral part. And i could not help but be in awe of one of the richest mythologies i have ever delved into.
After reading this, its no wonder why the Asatru follow this ancient practice. And use the Edda as their lore. I did not.
If you are looking for a book that will lay out Norse mythology in a orderly and well translated fashion, or perhaps you are a budding Asatru looking for the Edda to read, This is it.

Its a very big book, basicly an encyclopedia, it does not write down the stories of the different eddas as a story, but as basic info.Published 16 months ago by Ole-Emil Vernang
