Publisher's Summary

Unveil the legacy and history of Sweden like never before.

Sweden is a remarkable place, famous for its happy population, its fearsome Viking history, and the beautiful fjords and landscapes that mark this far-flung land. But the true story of Sweden goes far deeper than that, imbued with mighty tales of kings and devastating wars, a rapid and life-changing industrialization, and a journey to the peaceful, happy, and wealthy place that it is today.

This audiobook explores Sweden in an all-new light, offering a detailed glimpse at everything from its ancient history and the Neolithic people who spent their lives hunting reindeer to the powerful kingdoms, medieval battles, and the enlightenment that paved the way for modern Sweden.

With an examination of contemporary Swedish culture, a look at their political system, and reference to their place on the international stage, you’ll also discover the important figures who shaped the country through the ages. This audiobook is a must-listen for anyone interested in Scandinavia and world history.
