Struggling to understand the conflicts of his home, Ranald seeks adventure and knowledge across the seas, his journeys taking him as far as Norway, Iceland and Ireland. Through Ranald's story, many elements of early medieval life - of seamanship, marriage customs, beliefs and traditions - are brought to life, and the traditional poetry interwoven through the prose adds a richness and poignancy to the tales he tells."--BOOK JACKET." ;
