Overview

Gísla saga tells the Viking-age story of Gisli Sursson, a valiant man whose luck sometimes deserted him, and so ultimately, he was declared an outlaw. In his final battle, Gisli faced Eyjolf and fourteen armed men. He fought them to his death, killing many of them and wounding all of them before he was overcome. This book tells the story of that battle in brilliant photographs, with text from the saga in both English translation and in the original Icelandic. The photos were taken where the battle took occurred, standing in the footsteps of the people who fought and died there over 1000 years ago.
