Description

Hrafnkels saga tells the story of one man, Sámr, who dares to challenge a Viking chieftain, Hrafnkell. Sámr, a farmer, soon finds himself in way over his head. Sámr seeks justice for a slain kinsman and consequently must learn to navigate the Icelandic legal system and to hold his own against other chieftains. But as the tides turn in his favor, the saga questions whether he deserves his newfound power and whether he has the political tenacity to keep it. 

The favorite of many university professors for introducing their students to medieval Iceland, Hrafnkels saga is a thirteenth-century artistic reflection on the Viking Age. In a wild west beyond the reach of kings, chieftains made the law and farmers risked everything they had to find justice. This tale of honor, blood-feud, and revenge is brought to life in this eSaga with vivid photography, interactive maps, pop-ups notes, an indexed glossary, an introduction, a discussion, and a select bibliography. Award-winning scholar Colin Gioia Connors from the University of Wisconsin-Madison presents a simple and honest translation for a new generation of American readers.
