In 1360 AD, King Magnus Eirikson rules over a united Sweden and Norway-a Christian Scandinavia. When a rumor reaches the king that the colonies in Greenland have fallen back into pagan ritual, along with an alarming report that the inhabitants of the Western Settlement have mysteriously disappeared, Magnus entrusts Paul Knutson to make contact with Greenland and to verify the truth of these stories. Among these men are Olav Sigurdsson-a young man sailing to prove his bravery to the king and to reclaim his father's lost honor-and Eirik the Laplander, deeply loyal to Olav's family, but a pagan viewed with suspicion by the other Christian Scandinavians.

Upon confirming the disappearance of a whole settlement, Paul and his party follow a sparse trail of clues south across the seas toward "Vinland"-convinced that some of the colonists may still be alive.

245 pages, softcover. Ages 11 & up. RL 5.7.

Bonnie's older brother and three sisters, her various classmates and Miss Cora, her teacher, add their liveliness to an eventful season of learning - on every front - in the Kentucky Hills.

Johanathan came up first. He looked down at Martitia with irrepressible amusement lurking in his hazel eyes. "So little are you, Martitia. So little and so solemn. If you would only laugh back at us maybe we'd let you alone. Can't you learn to laugh too?" He leaned over and picked her up lightly. "Come, Martitia, I'll carry you across the stream". He walked out surely on the log, with Martitia held in his easy grasp. She felt secure at last. Then, right in the middle of the stream, Jonathan jumped over into the creek with her! It was as sudden as that. One minute she was held securely and dry and safe in Jonathan's arms on the log. Next minute she was scrambling and pawing in the waters of the creek. Martitia wondered, wildly, if moccasins and leeches and lizards were feeding on her already. Blind with water, she struggled toward the bank of the creek. Slipping and weeping, she reached the edge. She stood there a minute, her muslin dress dankly dripping. Then without a backward look at her tormentors she fled weeping up the path in the direction of home. "Will She Learn to Laugh?" Recommended for ages 12 and up.

When Sven sees that figure swept into the seas, he thinks instantly of his father who is the first mate on the schooner. He volunteers to go down the cliff in a desperate attempt to prevent the swimmer from being dashed against the rocks. But when he perilously reaches the bottom, Sven does not find either the hopeful or tragic ordeal he's expected; instead he is suddenly face to face with an intruder who will bring the whole island under a strange reign of terror in those last long-drawn-out hours of the storm.

A force ten gale; a damaged ship and crew in danger of smash-up on the rocks of its own island home; a handful of women, old men, and one 16-year-old boy, Sven, to rescue them--when it seems impossible for things to get any worse than they already are on the small Faroes island of Mykines, they do! Arthur Catherall skillfully weaves an authentic tale of courage and suspense. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
