BOOK: HJALTES KAMP - Children's book about a Viking boy

Hjaltes Kamp is a story of a Viking boy who cannot live up to his father Earl Trygve's expectations of courage and strength.

This book oozes the Viking Age and at the back of the book there are recipes for Viking food as well as an explanation of some of the things or phenomena that appear in the narrative. Rune alphabets are also included.

The Viking boy's saga 1 is the first volume in the series. It was written by children's book author Charlotte Blay, who is known for her many books, including some historical ones.
