Overview

'The Stranger Warrior' is an exciting historical tale for older children and young adults based on a famous British legend. The hero Horn is orphaned and cast adrift when a Viking fleet conquers the Isle of Man for the King of Norway. Because Horn has neither land nor treasure, he pursues his sacred duty of revenge, by striving to become a famous warrior. He serves both an English elderman and an Irish king, rejecting both comfort and love in his search for fame; and at last after many battles he avenges his father, reconquers Man and - almost incidentally - collects a bride.
