Audible Editor Reviews

The Vikings are as intriguing as one would anticipate, and Naxos makes this audiobook a thrilling educational experience. Here dragons of old are REAL - they are the fiercely decorated Viking ships. Narrator Joe Marsh brings his humor, enthusiasm, and excellent pronunciation to this novel. The "wild" men have names, and their bravery is heralded. Their rich history is covered, and their myths and legends are fully explored, making them even more beguiling. Best of all, Marsh sounds like he's talking solely to the listener. What a great way to learn!

Publisher's Summary

Between the 8th and 11th centuries, Vikings stormed out of their Scandinavian homelands to raid and loot along the coasts of Europe. In old Norse, to "go viking" meant to take to sea in a long ship for an adventure. Sometimes this was a trading trip, sometimes a piratical raid. Often it was both. Explorers and traders, warriors and poets, they ranged between Byzantium in the south and ventured as far as Iceland and even North America. Their fame lives on.

This entertaining and informative account was written especially for Naxos AudioBooks by David Angus, author of Great Explorers of the World, Great Inventors, and other spoken-word histories.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Outstanding!"

    A nonfiction book that's jam-packed with facts, yet has all the narrative force of fiction. It held my children (8 & 9) spellbound.
