An idealistic Icelandic farmer journeys to Mormon Utah and back in search of paradise in this captivating novel by Nobel Prize winner Halldor Laxness. The quixotic hero of this long-lost classic is Steinar of Hlidar, a generous but very poor man who lives peacefully on a tiny farm in nineteenth-century Iceland with his wife and two adoring young children. When he impulsively offers his children's beloved pure-white pony to the visiting King of Denmark, he sets in motion a chain of disastrous events that leaves his family in ruins and himself at the other end of the earth, optimistically building a home for them among the devout polygamists in the Promised Land of Utah. By the time the broken family is reunited, Laxness has spun his trademark blend of compassion and comically brutal satire into a moving and spellbinding enchantment, composed equally of elements of fable and folkore and of the most humble truths.

"Laxness describes the popular reaction to an attempt by the U.S. to buy land for a nuclear base near Reykjavik. He contrasts corruption and decadence in the capital with the simple life of peasants in the north . . . Rich, lyrical prose, all expertly interpreted in the translation. Among the many vivid characters, the narrator stands out: her wit, pride, and simplicity bring to mind heroines like Jane Eyre..". -- Booklist.
