FROM THE BACK OF THE BOOK:
What would it take for the ancient gods of Norse mythology to intervene in our planet's environmental plight? In this verse, SOLFRID'S SAGA, by poet Robert Gordon Sampson, the ancient Norse gods come alive. Odin lives again.
The poem begins when a time is foretold of the gods losing their power. Mighty Thor, God of the people, will become mere thunder. The blessings of the earth's natural occurrences will drain away. Human endeavor is turned to destruction. Evil trolls, hidden deeply in the earth, instigate this fateful course. Odin, chief of the Norse gods, lures Solfrid, a fair young maiden, to reverse the corruption whic threatens to leave the earth a wasteland.
Here is an engrossing, and dramatic poetic dialogue, skillfully written on a current and timeless theme.
