The Far Traveler: Voyages of A Viking Woman

15.00

By Nancy Marie Brown

Working with scientists experimenting with cutting-edge technology and the latest archaeological techniques, Nancy Marie Brown reconstructs a life, that of a Viking woman named Gudrid, that spanned and expanded the bounds of the then-known world.  500 years before Columbus, Gudrid sailed off the edge of the known world; she landed in the New World and lived there for 3 years, giving birth to a baby, before sailing home. In The Far Traveler, Brown sheds new light on the society that gave rise to a woman even more extraordinary then legend has painted her and illuminates the reasons for its collapse. 

Nancy Marie Brown lives in the Northeast Kingdom with her Icelandic horses and her husband fellow writer Charles Fergus.
