Detailed Product Description
Oslo, 1966, 1st edition. 120 pp, b/w photos, illustrations and maps. In Norwegian. Pictorial hardcover. No dust jacket issued. Fine condition.

From the Heritage of Norway series of books.

Developments in skiing during the last hundred years have been little short of fabulous. This book is about the origins of skiing, as long ago as the time of the Norse Sagas, and about how the ski-tracks later spread from Morgedal over Norway's mountains, along the valleys, and out into the wide world - to the Olympic Games. - From the book cover.

Wikipedia: Olav Bø (19 May 1918 – 26 July 1998) was a Norwegian folklorist. He was born in Bygland. Bø was appointed at the University of Oslo from 1956, as professor from 1974. Among his books are Norsk skitradisjon from 1966, Vår norske jul from 1970, and Trollmakter og godvette from 1987. He wrote a biography of cross-country skier and resistance member Johan Grøttumsbråten. He was decorated Knight, First Class of the Order of St. Olav in 1985.
