It is the year 1206, and deep in the snow-covered mountains and valleys of Norway the fiercest warriors in the land struggle to ski a baby to safety. They race against the greed and inequity of the rich, against the very weather of Norway. They race as the only way to save a child prince and bring peace to their country. Here is a true story of both bravery and tenderness. Lunge-Larsen's dramatic telling is direct and mesmerizing. Mary Azarian's strong woodcuts capture the warmth and reggedness of medieval life. A book the whole family will enjoy. Ages 6-12 (& up). Paperback.
