A Slave\u2019s Tale, the sequel to Hakon of Rogen\u2019s Saga, is told from the point of view of a slave girl, Helga, who stows away on the longship when Hakon, the young Viking chieftain, sets sail for France on a voyage to return Rark, a freed slave, to his homeland. The voyagers\u2019 journey is perilous-they narrowly escape capture by an invading fleet, and their ship is severely damaged by a storm. Upon reaching France-where the Vikings are now hated, not feared-only tragedy ensues.

"Much of the stark epic quality of Hakon of Rogen's Saga is here, but rising above it is a deeply felt message. . . . An absorbing, powerful story." -Horn Book, August 1965

"An outstanding tale for older readers, with strength and poetry in its telling." -Chicago Tribune

"The past comes vividly alive in this vigorous and romantic saga of the Viking era." -Commonweal, May 1965
