After Hiarandi is unjustly slain, his sixteen-year-old son Rolf is made outlaw by the same murderous neighbors.

However, when the marauding baresarks arrive, master and slave alike must fight for their lives-and Rolf is the only man who can string the mighty Viking bow.

A thousand years ago when the Vikings roamed the seas, led by their Norse gods, there lived a man in Norway called Erik the Red. He was able and strong but his temper was wild, and after a fight he was banned from Norway. So he sailed to Iceland. There he built a farm, found a wife, and lived in peace for a while. But then he began to quarrel and fight again, and it wasn't long before he had to flee from Iceland, too.

Here is a fascinating look at England's mysterious Viking era - a colorful and evocative time of Dark-Ages fear, fighting faith, and cloak-and-dagger subterfuge; an age when warriors were sanctified, kings were martyred and barbarian overlords were humbled before the cross of Christ. Rich in imagery, this book will stir the imagination and inform both the head and the heart.

Based on Viking Age poems, the saga combines mythology, legends and sheer human drama. At its heart are the heroic deeds of Sigurd the dragon slayer who acquires runic knowledge from one of Odin's Valkyries. Yet is it also set in a very human world, incorporating oral memories of the 4th and 5th centuries, when Attila the hun and other warriors fought on the northern frontiers of the Roman empire. An illuminating Introduction links the historical Huns, Burgundians and Goths with the events of this Icelandic saga, whose author claimed that Sigurd's name was 'known in all tongues north of the Greek Ocean, and so it must remain while the world endures'.

Eyrbyggja Saga is prominent in the great group of medieval Icelandic sagas that Magnus Magnusson has called 'historical novels - the first novels to be written in Europe.'

Mixing realism with wild Gothic imagination, history with eerie tales of hauntings, it dramatizes a 13th-century view of the past, from the pagan anarchy of the Viking Age to the settlement of Iceland, the coming of Christianity and the beginnings of organized society. Its central figure is Snorri, a man so perplexingly ambiguous that the narrator himself is drawn to speculate on his motives and a character who brilliantly epitomizes the violent stresses of his times.

Written around AD 1200 by an unnamed Icelandic author, the Orkneyinga Saga is the only medieval chronicle to have Orkney as the central place of action, and from it we derive much of our knowledge of the Northern Isles and Caithness. The Saga describes the conquest of the islands by the kings of Norway during the Viking expansion of the ninth century and goes on to narrate the susequent history of the Earldom of Orkney. Dominated by the great figures of the times - Sigurd the Powerful, St. Magnus the Martyr and Hrdolf, the conqueror of Normandy - the Saga is a powerful account of warfare and the struggle for supremacy. This modern translation captures the force of the Orkneyinga Saga, which retains a special signifigance for the people of Orkney, sharpening their awareness of their dual cultural heritage, both Norse and Scottish.

They tell of famous kings, difficult gods and women of great beauty, goodness or cunning; but although they paint the traditional colourful picture of the Viking warrior making raids in his dragon-headed longboat, these stories are not concerned, like Hrafnkel's Saga, to point a moral or to set down the glories of Icelandic history or geography.

    During the struggle between the Saxons and Vikings, 23-year-old Alfred ascended the throne and temporarily beat back the pagan hordes and signed a peace treaty. Following another war in 878, peace was again achieved; the Danish King Guthrum accepted Christianity and withdrew to East Anglia, and Alfred the Great fortified cities, built a navy, codified laws, and revived learning among the Saxons until his death in A.D. 900. The hero is a Saxon thane named Edmund who joins the forces of King Alfred, and then fights the Danes on land and in their own element, the sea, in his ship The Dragon. Carried by storms to the shores of Norway, he defeats Sweyn the Viking in single combat, takes part in the siege of Paris on behalf of the Franks, and tracks down his nemesis in order to rescue the Danish maiden he will later marry.
