George Henry Borrow (1803 - 1881) was a prolific English author who collected and translated ballads from many European lands. His list of works here at ManyBooks is one of the largest.

Young Swaigder, or The Force of Runes is a collection of several medieval Danish Ballads:

1. Young Swaigder, or The Force of Runes
2. The Hail Storm
3. Rosmer Mereman
4. The Wicked Stepmother

Stories in rhyme, the short collection is of interest to folklorists.
