Viking Stories

Shetlanders have a strong connection to their Scandinavian past and Viking roots and this is reflected strongly in the storytelling of the islands. The stories included in this volume represent a small part of this tradition and are collected together for the first time to give the reader a taste of what Shetland storytelling can offer. The stories include the usual motley crew of heroes, villains, monsters and princesses. They run the full gamut of emotions, bravery, love and tragedy with even an element of the supernatural thrown in for good measure.
