Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most people think of Vikings as fierce and merciless, but is that the whole truth? This beautifully illustrated book now tells the rest of their story, revealing the full range of Viking life and culture. The Bergers present the Vikings' notable accomplishments as skilled craftsmen, hard-working farmers, prosperous merchants, explorers of faraway lands--and as firm believers in personal independence and democracy. (And they didn't even wear those funny horned hats!) Readers examine the magnificent sailing ships that enabled the Vikings to rule the seas for more than 300 years, and learn how they traveled throughout Europe, into Russia, to North America, and even to the Middle East, changing the face and civilizations of much of the world. A vivid look at exciting times--and a great resource for school reports!
