When I was in junior high, there was a book in the school’s library on Norse Mythology that I checked out several times. I’ve been thinking about that book lately, and I’d like to read it again. The only problem is I don’t remember the name of the book or of the author. I only have a few vague clues to go on:
The book was broken down into around 15 or so chapters, each one dealing with a different god or specific event. The only chapter title I can remember for sure was Ragnarok, the final chapter.
It was written in modern English and was relatively short and easy to read. It’s been a while, but I’m pretty sure it was presented as a fictional retelling of events, as opposed to a dry textbook style of writing.
This particular edition had a plain yellow cover. It was in the early 90’s that I read the book, but the edition looked like it was much older, possibly 60’s or 70’s. I can’t recall if there were any chapter illustrations or not; I seem to remember one of Skoll and Hati devouring the sun and moon, but I may be pulling that out of thin air.
I’ve looked around on Amazon but haven’t been able to find it yet, at least not from the book descriptions on there. Any help would be appreciated.
