    1. This book tells the story of the founding and settlement of Iceland by Scandinavian farmers, mostly from Norwegian extraction during the Icelandic Saga Age The short chronicle like prose tells many of the stories that are preserved in the longer Icelandic Family Sagas but in a much condensed form The English prose translation is excellent and is accompanied by a selection of full colour photos, but best of all, there s a good selection of fold out colour maps that chart the settlement of Icelan [...]
