Title: The Northern Path: Norse Myths and Legends Retold...And What They Reveal
Author(s): Douglas "Dag" Rossman
Publisher: Seven Paws Press
Publication Date: June 30, 2005
ISBN: 0964911396
ISBN-13: 978-0964911390
Current Price and More Info from Amazon

Description:
This accessible and reflective book will appeal to anyone with an interest in mythology and storytelling. It has two sections: a retelling of the myths, then an analysis of their sources, meaning, and application to modern people. We think Rossman is uniquely qualified both to tell these tales and to reflect upon their value for modern times, and that The Northern Path is far more than just another collection of Norse myths. Rossman is well acquainted with the work of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell. For the past 25 years, he's not only studied Norse mythology but also told these tales to live audiences, as the Norse skalds told them centuries ago, and interacted with audiences about their meaning and relevance for today. He has worked with the myths both with adults and with Norwegian-American youngsters at the Sons of Norway's Camp Norway, and has made the myths, the runes, and their wisdom part of his own personal journey.
