4.0 out of 5 stars Brendan Voyage, 3 July 2009
This review is from: The Voyage of Saint Brendan: Journey to the Promised Land (Paperback)
This is a very readable version of a fascinating story which fills in the blanks of a largely forgotten period of history.

The style may be seen as being heavy going, but it's relatively short length and fast paced progress from chapter to chapter make it well worth the read.
