The Far Traveler: Voyages of a Viking Woman

by Nancy Marie Brown is beyond extraordinary. It is beautifully written, exquisitely imagined, deeply, broadly, courageously, and meticulously researched and--- yes, and--- it goes into the deepest vein of what story means to us all. I'm only half way through, and I know already that The Far Traveler will top my list of top 10 books read in 2008.
