True and Untrue and Other Norse Tales
A selection of Norwegian folktales chosen by Sigrid Undset,
True and Untrue and Other Norse Tales is based on the
classic folklore collected by Pieter Christian Asbjørnsen and
Jørgen Moe. These wonderful stories tell of worlds similar to our
own, worlds with love and hate, 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,
husbands 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 foreword by Undset, True and Untrue and Other Norse
Tales has a story for everyone.
