Trolls are the fiercest, ugliest, and most feared creatures in Scandinavian mythology. They live under bridges, in mountains, and deep forests--but no matter where they reside, they have always presented a threat to humans who cross their path. Besides learning the history behind troll folklore, readers will hear the most frightening of the old tales and see how new types of trolls are still found in literature, gaming, and movies.
