Relates the thrilling exploits of Rolf in the land of the Vikings: how he becomes an outlaw, and a thrall, and at long last gains his freedom and avenges the unlawful slaying of his father. Through his trials Rolf is challenged to grow in manliness, developing courage, self-control, patriotism, and perseverance, and in the end rising above the feud that has consumed him for so long. The story, inspired by Icelandic sagas, serves as an excellent introduction to the prevailing values of the Viking era. Suitable for ages 11 and up.

Review:

"This heroic saga of medieaval Iceland ranks with the tales of Sigmund, Beowulf, and more recent masterpieces such Tolkein's "The Lord of the Rings.

About the Author:

Allen French was born on November 28, 1870, in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard University in 1894 and for several years, beginning in 1908, taught English at his alma mater. His first interest, however, was history, and his contributions to historical writing are many and varied. Of special interest to readers of his Story of Grettir the Strong are his books Rolf and the Viking Bow, and Heroes of Iceland, an adaptation of Njal's Saga. Also of particular interest to young readers are his Sir Marrok: A Tale of the Days of King Arthur, The Red Keep: A Story of Burgundy in the Year 1165, and The Lost Baron: A Story of England in the Year 1200.
