In his fourth novel, George Mackay Brown takes us to an Orkney torn between its Viking past and its Christian future.

Set in the early 11th Century, it tells the story of Ranald Sigmundson, who turns his back on a successful life of political intrigues and battles to design a ship to take him on a journey even greater than the first great voyage of his life, the one to Vinland.
