In the eighth century, ships with bright sails and dragonhead prows suddenly swept across the seas of northern Europe. They carried daring men with heavy swords who sought adventure, booty and new lands in which to live. Europe became their battlefield, and the distant islands of the North Atlantic became their colonies. They were Vikings! Beautifully illustrated, this graphic novel captures the imagination of readers of all ages and inspires a love of history and reading. A must-have classic for your digital library!
