Brave and adventurous Edith Valgardsdottir longs to hunt polar bears with her father and brother. Instead, she must stay at home on the farm in Greenland, tending the sheep and learning to weave. But, when she becomes an accidental stowaway on a Viking ship, she finds herself on the wildest adventure imaginable, bound for mysterious Markland with rough and dangerous sailors. The voyage is one of self-discovery for the young girl who learns that adventure is not, in fact, the thing she wants most in life. Will she ever see home again?
