Fury From the North

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Much about the Vikings remains a mystery - including the very name by which they are known. Whatever its origin, the word Viking quickly acquired a meaning it has never lost: a seaborne rover, raider, and conqueror. Yet, the Vikings had another side that was exceptionally creative and constructive. And in the long run, this was far more influential than all the fire and fury of their raids. Here, in this short-form book, is their story.

Salvador Dali once called him the stupidest man in the world; Cary Grant described him as the smartest. New York Times bestselling author Robert Wernick is certainly talented. He has penned more than a dozen books and has contributed to a host of magazines, ranging from Life to Vanity Fair. His topics are as varied as the birth of town planning in the Mesolithic Age to a soul-baring Ferris-wheel ride with Marilyn Monroe to a climb up Mount Sinai. He has made his home in Manhattan, Algiers, a ranch in the Nevada desert, San Francisco, the Basque coast, the Golden Isles of Georgia, and, most recently, the 14th Arrondissement of Paris.
