Tales from the Viking Isles
by Clive Gilson
Continuing the theme of stories from northern lands, this volume concentrates on the Sagas of from Viking isles, such as Iceland and The Faroe Isles. These forms are also known as family sagas, and were often told by the “skald” bards. For the most part these sagas take the form of prose narratives and are mostly based on historical events that took place in the 9th, 10th, & early 11th centuries.
