There was a time when waters were clean and forests were untouched, when ancient lands spoke of guardians of the Earth. In Scandinavian lands, these mysterious creatures were called trolls, and were known to guard what was left of the earth’s natural treasures by burying precious metals and minerals underground. Because they were rarely seen, people believed trolls no longer existed. Today, these nearly forgotten creatures are once again in our midst.
