Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
The term "Viking" often brings to mind a fierce, warrior people or intrepid explorers. This book examines the truths and distortions behind these impressions. The focus is the food consumed by the Vikings-how it was prepared, preserved and shared. Contrary to the assumptions of many, Vikings were known as a clean, handsome group. Dairy products, especially buttermilk, were a major component of the diet. Maps are included, detailing the extensive travels of the Vikings. A glossary defines unfamiliar terms, highlighted in bold print in the text. A few recipes appear at the back-no recipes survive from Viking times, so the examples are gleaned from the foods known to be popular. Photographs of Viking artifacts and reconstruction are sprinkled throughout. A fascinating glimpse into an unfamiliar civilization which left lasting impressions on our world.
