The sea is a characteristic feature of Scandinavia and Scandinavia is in general a damp place. The land is cloaked in mist and springs bubble up everywhere. Glaciers feed rivers and lakes, and there are wondrous old stories about all of these things. Trolls, elves, and gnomes guard the streams, for since the earliest times, people have known how valuable the essential, life-giving water is. Miriam Andersén and her friends have many a song to sing about it all.
