The Far Traveler


This is the non-fiction version of The Sea Road and I liked it, although I enjoyed The Sea Road more. The Far Traveler: Voyages of a Viking Woman isn't really a biography; instead, it's more about the sagas themselves, and the Vikings and the ways we can learn about them. As I said, I liked it, although with the topic and such, I would have expected to love it. But it felt slow. And, as usual, I'd rather read about history and science from historians and scientists, not writers.

Both are recommended.
