Tonight, we’ll read the complete story of “East of the Sun, West of the Moon”, a Norwegian fairy tale, collected by Asbjørnsen and Moe. In this story, a talking bear approaches a poor peasant and asks if he will give him his daughter as a wife in return for making the family rich.Many listeners have asked us to complete this story, as when it originally aired on March 11th, 2019, we didn’t include the ending. So here it is, rerecorded. Enjoy!
