Can anyone help me find more information about this myth/legend:

so far this is the most I've been able to find about him. I know there should be more out there but I'm running into road blocks.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

In the Saga of the Volsungs, Gunnar is the brother of Gudrun, who swears to marry Brunhilde by riding through fire to her dwelling. But it is in fact Sigurd who performs the feat, in Gunnar's shape.

There's this page on Wikipedia, under a different form of his name, Gunther:

Are you looking for the Volsung Saga or just more information about it? The text of the saga can be found here.
