They posses a striking individuality, a character that is distinctively Norwegian. One cannot enter a stave church without being overwhelmed by a feeling of awe. The architecture enhances the spiritual message of the church and the "staves", the masts that support the entire structure, also elevate one's thoughts. More than 800 years have left their mark on these ancient structures, and cause us to reflect on our heritage in wonderment and humility.

With a page or two devoted to each of the remaining 28 stave churches, don't expect an extensive report on any one of the stave churches. But each description is a nice introduction and includes a full page exterior photo and a smaller interior one of some detail that invites the reader to visit all of them!
This little book does make a lovely quick reference for the traveler, so you can pick which church(es) to see. The included map of Norway, with locations highlighted, makes it easy to decide what will work with your own itinerary. There are not a lot of books out there (in English, at least) that are specific to Norway, so in addition to being a ready guide for the traveler, it's a nice keepsake of the trip, as well.

A book that I have given as a gift. Good material.

I was looking for a fine catalogue of interior and exterior wood carvings which are almost finer than Irish tracery. These did not materialize. A lot of work which missed the real point of the art work. How dumb are these authors

Stave churches are post and beam buildings that were constructed during the medeival period in Northwestern Europe. Most of these striking wooden churches have dissapeared over the centuries. However, due to its relative poverty and isolation, Stave churhes survived in Norway into the modern era.

Twenty nine of these remarkable churches can still be visited in Norway. "Norway's Stave Churches", is a pleasant guide book for anyone interested in visiting them. After a straight forward introduction, the authors present three page descriptions of each of the surviving churches. The photos are beautiful and the written content is brief and to the point. If you are looking for an academic study of Stave churches, this book is not for you. However, if you are looking for a brief introduction to the surviving Stave churches, this book hits the spot. Highly recommended for anyone planning a trip to rural Norway.
