Voyage to the Farm
Richard Loomis, 2005 - 176 pages
The protagonist of Voyage to the Farm is Thorir Gunnarsson, a farmer of thirteenth-century Iceland, then losing its independence as a free commonwealth and becoming subject to Norway. Thorir's boyhood dream of following his ancestors to Vinland gives way to defense of his farm, Thorisstadir, as his uncle trains him for leadership in the strife-torn land.
