bookshelves: fiction
Read in January, 1998

608 pages.

A medieval saga set in a Scandinavian settlement that lasted for 500 years.

Smiley gives readers a magnificant novel of 14th century Greenland. Rich with fascinating detail about day-to-day life, The Greenlanders is also the compelling story of one family. Echoing the simple power of old Norse sagas, The Greenlanders brings a remote civilization to unforgettable life.
