Travel back to a magical world of colorful myth and legend as you explore this collection of folktales from Sweden. Over eighty stories are told, with more than forty illustrations of trolls, ghosts, giants and other denizens of the Swedish folkscape. There are tales of lost treasure, encounters with the devil, meetings with the tomte, the spirits of the home, and of the beautiful wood nymphs, whose true nature is often betrayed by a fox tail peeking below the hem of a skirt. Swedish Fairy Tales, originally published in 1890, will dazzle a new generation of readers with legends from Sweden’s early storytelling tradition.
