Email this review


Adventures of Norwegian Evald, ignorant of his parentage, and brought up by orusty Ols. He has adopted, in spite of objections, a young wolf, an eagle, etc. and when chance is offered to go out with the fishing fleet, he accepts, taking his eagle with him. An enemy makes things hard for him -- but ultimately he triumphs, and when finally his maligner dies, he learns the truth of his proud ancestry. Norwegian customs, life, the turn of the seasons, -- good adventure against foreign background. Serialized in the St. Nicholas.
