pICELAND is a little country far north in the cold sea. Men found it and went there to live more than a thousand years ago. During the warm season they used to fish and make fish-oil and hunt sea-birds and gather feathers and tend their sheep and make hay. But the winters were long and dark and cold. Men and women and children stayed in the house and carded and spun and wove and knit. A whole family sat for hours around the fire in the middle of the room. That fire gave the only light. Shadows flitted in the dark corners. Smoke curled along the high beams in the ceiling. The children sat on the dirt floor close by the fire. The grown people were on a long narrow bench that they had pulled up to the light and warmth. Everybodys hands were busy with wool. The work left their minds free to think and their lips to talk. What was there to talk about? The summers fishing, the killing of a fox, a voyage to Norway. But the people grew tired of this little gossip./pp- The Babybr /- The Tooth Thrallbr /- Olafs Farmbr /- Olafs Fight with Havardbr /- Foes-fearbr /- Harald is Kingbr /- Haralds Battlebr /- Gydas Saucy Messagebr /- The Sea Fightbr /- King Haralds Weddingbr /- King Harald Goes West-Over-Seasbr /- Homes in Icelandbr /- Eric the Redbr /- Leif and His New Landbr /- Wineland the Good/p
