In 1450 A.D. Treeland is home to the glorious
Vikings, but it is also a land of many other peoples: Christian
Norsemen, Spanish Muslims, Norwegian pagans, and Skraelings, the
original inhabitants of America.
One man, cast from his homeland for kinslaying, cuts a swath through the very heart of this sprawling country. In a journey which begins on the eastern coast and nearly ends on the blood-drenched pyramids of Mexico, Hring Kristjanson reshapes his world. Driven by a relentless determination to survive, Hring willingly sacrifices all to rule now and forever as King of the Wood.
