The Hallmundssons have selected and translated all the tales in this volume from the classic collection of 19th-century folklorist Jon Arnason, who devoted years of his life to recording stories preserved by oral tradition since the early days of Iceland's history. Many of these stories were passed down through word of mouth over the centuries until Jon Arnason and Magnus Grimsson began collecting and recording them on paper in the mid 1800s. The book is divided into four categories, those being " Elves & Trolls", "Ghosts & Sorcerers", "Sinners & Saints" and finally "Miscellaneous Tales".
