Abstract:

"Set against the harsh beauty of the Lofoten Islands, The Last of the Vikings is a stirring depiction both of man's perseverance and of the end of an era. Its action centers upon a single fishing season, when the Norwegian peasantry, descendants of the Vikings, make their annual voyage to the Islands. Battling wind and sea as their ancestors have done for a thousand years, now they also must face a new challenge: the competition of the machine, inevitably dooming their age-old way of life. It is this way of life that dominates these pages."--Back cover.
