|About the Book|
Thor paid no attention, but rowed on until they were far out of sight of land and about where he thought the great snake was coiled in the bottom of the sea- then he laid down the oars, as fresh and strong apparently as when he got into the boat. It was the strangest fishing party the world ever saw, and the most wonderful fishing. No sooner had Hymers bait touched the water than it was seized by two whales. Thor smiled quietly at the giants luck, took out a fishing-line, made with wonderful skill, and so strong that it could not be broken, fastened the bulls head upon the hook and cast it into the sea.
