The Story of Rolf and the Viking Bow



The Story of Rolf and the Viking Bow (Living History Library Series)

After Hiarandi is unjustly slain, his sixteen-year-old son Rolf is made outlaw by the same murderous neighbors. Rolf flees Iceland with his faithful cousin Frodi, only to be enslaved in the Orkneys by proud Grani. However, when the marauding baresarks arrive, master and slave alike must fight for their lives- and Rolf is the only man who can string the mighty Viking bow. Allen French’s tale of Iceland, told in the classic saga form, is an exciting story of Christian versus pagan values, forgiveness versus pride. The way Rolf comes to terms with his enemies in the face of injustice creates a suspenseful, thought-provoking book difficult to put down.
