The Sagas of Icelanders

with a preface by Jane Smiley, introduction by Robert Kellogg.
In Iceland, the age of the Viking is also called the Saga age.
A unique body of medieval literature, the Sagas rank with the world’s great literary treasures. Set around the turn of the last millenium, these stories depict with an astonishing modern realism the lives and deeds of the Norse men and women who first settled Iceland and of their descendents, who ventured farther west – to Greenland and, eventually, the coast of North America.
