A Tale of Dreams and Luck
A novel by

A combination of fact, fiction, and fantasy, Eiriksdottir is the story of Norsemen who, 1,000 years ago, crossed the treacherous seas to Vinland, a land that became both mythical and real. Their final voyage, led by Freydis Eiriksdottir, the enigmatic daughter of the renegade Eirik the Red, is shrouded in mystery. Of the two ships that set out from Greenland in search of Vinland, why did only one ship return from the fabled new-found land? And what kind of a leader was Freydis? Was she brave and resourceful? Or was she, as the sagas claim, vengeful and cruel? Epic in scope, Eiriksdottir presents a complex northern world in which greed and desire, dreams and luck are intertwined. Joan Clark's vivid and sensuous prose will resonate in the reader's mind long after the last page has been turned.
