Odin and Yggdrasil

American Gods is centered around the god Wednesday or Odin who controls and organizes each event as it plays out and who most influences Shadow, the main character.  Odin is most associated with the World Tree or Yggdrasil, a tree that connects all of the worlds in the Universe including those belonging to the gods. One of Yggdrasil’s branches is Midgard or Middle Earth or the home of the human race.  It supplies the populations of both Niflheim and Valhalla.
