Gives one an idea of the Icelandic law in Viking times.

I have read my share of Icelandic sagas and I must say this is my favorite yet. This is the longest of the family sagas. Saga readers will encounter many familiar faces, but even those who have never read a saga before should pick this up. This is a great text to get a feel for the great writing tradition of medieval Iceland. This edition contains excellent footnotes that will help the reader put the stories into perspective. Do not miss this amazing experience.

One of the classic Icelandic sagas, Njal's Saga relates the often complex world of medieval Iceland. Feuds, duels, and constant sexual tension weave their way through this exciting tale. Great fun and a wonderful new translation.
