The Long Ships

The Long Ships
Set in the tenth century, when Vikings roamed and rampaged from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. A boy abducted by the Vikings from his Danish home is made to take his place at the oars of their ships. Later, he is captured by the Moors in Spain and, escaping from captivity, washes up in Ireland, where he marvels at the Christian monks. Eventually, he contributes to the Viking defeat of the army of the king of England, and returns home a Christian and a very rich man.

From Library Staff

This epic tale of Vikings is filled with treasure, not all of it the time that comes in battered wooden chests. Expect lots of killing and pillaging and wit.
