Fragments of Lappish Mythology


I've begun reading LLL's book on Sami myths, which was published in Finland in 1997 and translated into English in 2002. Very readable. The foreward and introduction are fascinating.

Already, I have a more complex take on Laestadius, as someone gifted and flawed and deeply human -- and not without a sense of humor. I'll write more about this later, but I want to encourage everyone with an interest in Laestadianism to read this book, and if you are so inclined, to comment here.

It is also available through amazon.
