Overview

For those wanting an interesting peek into the lifestyle of the vikings and an insight into their mindset, this will be a worthwhile read. Find out how slaves (or thralls) were used and treated by the privileged of society. Get a glimpse into the clothing worn and foods eaten. Most importantly, this text will help explain the worldview of these mysterious people. They worshiped strange gods, and felt their life after death would be humiliating if they didn't die courageously in battle. To die any other way would've been shameful. The sense of extreme entitlement struck me strongly as I read, seeing these men take what they wanted, whenever they felt the need, killing persons standing in their way. You'll gain insight into some more famous men and vikings from history and lore: Harald, King of Norway, as well as Eric the Red and Leif the Lucky. Stories are told in a straight-forward manner with little building of tension or drama. Otherwise, I would've given this book a 5 star. This is definitely a worthwhile read for those studying the Middle Ages with young children or who simply want to share these stories with little ones. Recommended for children 6 or older.

A great introduction to the Viking world of facts and myth. A great book for those who are curious about the Viking era. A fun and educational book for students with many good "who ,how, and why examples".The references are outstanding.I have read many Viking books,but,I wish I had found this earlier (however it is a new publish date).

Well, this place is dead. This is the camp where I started out. Me and Kenny. It's almost funny how we came here to take control of the camp but gradually became apart of it. Now, I'm glad that happened because if it didn't Kenny and I probably wouldn't have been to create the other camps that we did. Guys, this place really made a difference to me. The friends I made here were tremendous, as were the enemies. I miss you all; Ace, David, Sun, Sutton, Zerana, River, Rey, Rose, Emilee, Megan, Calli, Crypt, Dash, Seth, Syren, Xandria, AnnaSophia, Garrett, Jared, Lil, Genis, Mei Li, Craig, Maximum, and Hush. I will miss you all dearly but most of all I will miss you, Kenny. You were my partner in crime man. We went through a whole lotta sh<_>it together. Maybe you'll come back. Maybe you'll all come back. I miss you guys. <p> ~Cyrus, or if you want, call me Nick. I'll take a risk and leave my number here if you knew me and wanna contact me. 864,633,0894 <p> P.S. There's a great camp over at 'Athenian Constitution'

It's sad to think this where l started Role Playing. And l can't even give you a handful of names of the people who used to Role Play here, and ones that are still Role Playing today. I miss all of you, though l was a total newb back then. The old days were the best days, and l hope everyone who reads this has a good life. We need to keep Role Play going. *She disapoofed.*

Cypher walks in. His iron exoskeleton blackened from fires and smoke rising from the spine piece that was broken almost in half.
