Aleksander Myklebust
Glimpses of Norway

This is the perfect book for anybody who loves Norway or who is interested
in visiting the country. The author leads the reader on an exciting
adventure with his enthusiastic texts and engaging photographs. This is
not your typical travel guide that points out the obvious tourist attractions;
rather, it is a collection of evocative descriptions of this long and narrow country, so far to the north.
This book is packed with information, both about smaller less famous
sites, and about the big national monuments like the Oslo Opera House
and the German wharf, “Bryggen”, in Bergen. The reader is invited
aboard a traditional wooden “snekke” on the sea outside Mandal, and
we visit the abandoned mining settlement “The Pyramid” on Spitzbergen.
The reader even has an encounter with a selection of the country’s
wild animals and birds.
