"Out of the norther mists comes this timeless tale of the goddess Iduna, whose gift of everlasting life keeps the world young. The divine love that flows from the beautiful Iduna constantly renews the earth, and the golden apples from her sacred garden give immorality to the gods. But when the precious fruit is stolen and the goddess abducted by an evil giant, a frozen darkness descends upon the world. A journey to the land of the dead and a battle of fire and ice must be undertaken before the wicked are conquered and Iduna can once again reign in her sacred grove. This ancient Norse myth comes to life again in the haunting words of Marianna Mayer and the exquisitely detailed illustrations of Laszlo Gal.". Bookseller Inventory # 000101
