Heathen Tribes by Mark Ludwig Stinson
“Heathen Tribes – A Collection of Essays Concerning the Tribes of Our Folk” by Mark Ludwig Stinson is a collection of over 60 essays concerning the Folkway of our People and the Tribes we build. Heathen Tribes includes a chapter for new Kindreds and Tribes, chapters on roles and responsibilities within a Tribe, building regional bonds between Tribes, a chapter on heathen families, and the book even includes an example of kindred by-laws that you can adapt to your own use. This is a book of practical advice for any Heathen involved in building and maintaining a Heathen Kindred or Tribe.
Heathenry is very family oriented, and encourages us to live responsible lives of honor. Nothing is more important than our families and the children that we bring into this world. Written by Mark Ludwig Stinson, the modern heathen fables included in "Heathen Families" are just one part of a larger puzzle of finding better ways of sharing our way-of-life with our children. This book also brings together all of the essays written to-date by Mark Stinson on the topic of Heathen children and families. Love your children, give gifts to your Gods, honor your ancestors, and respect the Vaettir of the land. Hail our Folk!

The Icelandic Sagas are prose histories, describing life and events that took place in Iceland, during the 10th and 11th centuries. They are stories of families, adventures, feuding, deal-making, wars, great journeys, history, and myth. They are stories of the Norse and Celtic settlers and their descendants in Iceland during what is sometimes called the Saga Age. For Asatruars and Heathens, there is indispensible knowledge to be gained here. These tales give us a window into the world of our heathen ancestors. What did they value? How did they resolve conflicts? How did they uphold their responsibilities to their famlies and their friends? How did they approach life and their places within the community? How did they view and honor their Gods and Ancestors? Contained in this volume are nearly 800 pages of Icelandic Sagas. Read, learn, and enjoy these tales of our Ancestors.
A second volume of English translations of Icelandic Sagas. Too many worthy stories to fit in one volume!
The Nine Books of the Danish History by Saxo Grammaticus

Included as well are over 50 pages of introductory material by Frederick Powell and all of the original illustrations from the 1905 edition of the book. This book is 338-pages
