A very well written, exhaustive, inspiring, readable, and yes; fascinating book exploring all aspects of the Vikings' expansion westward. He looks into areas I certainly hadn't considered and he makes me want to find out more about the Vikings' often neglected, certainly under-appreciated, yet incredible achievements in the New World. Enthralling and (again) inspiring. Read it even if you only have a passing interest in Vikings - you'll have more than that when you're finished - I guarantee it.
