When the conquering Vikings settle in North America, they realise that
their new home might not be as pleasant as they thought. The land is
green and fertile but will they ever become friends with the natives,
the fierce and war-like people they call Skraelings? Or will they be forced to return to Greenland?

A Viking story blending Norse mythology with historical fact and Terry Deary's vividly imagined characters.
